Trenton Circus Squad inspires young people to take big leaps in life. Our squad members learn how to cooperate, push themselves and serve their community – all through the astonishing practice of circus arts.

Circus Squad members learn physical techniques, life skills and build trust with teens from other neighborhoods. They lead community engagement through workshops and performances with younger children and families. It’s an often-breathtaking experience filled with exercise, learning and joyful laughter for kids of all ages.

The Result

Circus arts are challenging. They require focus, teamwork, and a lot of discipline to make daring pursuits possible. Circus arts spur personal expression and deep connections too. That’s why they are a proven, effective way to foster self-reliance and confidence in young people.
