We sincerely thank our students, families, volunteers, donors and community partners for supporting us in continuing programming! We hope you and your families are healthy and well. Our #1 priority is continuing to do all we can for the young people of our region, so please join us in navigating this unique experience!

As we follow the guidelines of health officials and state procedures, we have adapted group programming with the above board-approved protocol. We all still need to be extremely careful and we are continuing to advise safe distancing. 

Our offices are open and staff are continuing to work full time on student support remotely as well as in-person. We have ample online resources for academics, test prep, college and career readiness, and financing your education. We are available 24/7 to connect with students via phone, email, and text. We can also schedule in-person meetings. 

True North is available to support any students and their families, and facilitate connections to community resources. Call / text us anytime!

"All of the True North activities they do along the way help to strengthen their resume so when the time comes to apply for scholarships, they are truly a
well-rounded individual and a competitive candidate." - Daily Planet article 

Find Your True North

We start building student “resumes” that emphasize work history, community service, and academics when they are in the 8th grade, in order to set them up for success when it comes time to apply for college, trade school, or make a transition into the workforce.

"It was awesome... yet again! They all had a blast! You are fantastic and the organization behind you is SO much fun, always seamless from a spectator's (my) end. Thank you! True North is near and dear to my heart... angelic in many ways and I am so, very grateful!"
- Jody Brown (parent of two teens, after our return from Moab, 2019)
