About us

Trenton Circus Squad is a non-profit organization offering FREE workshops and after-school programs for youth ages 6-18

Participants practice physical skills that improve health and well-being, learn life skills that help them achieve, and build trust with others.

Trenton Circus Squad taps into the wonder and tradition of circus to build on the extraordinary potential for youth to transform themselves and people around them when they have confidence in their own value.

TCS goes to great lengths, or should I say death-defying heights, to empower kids to think big about what’s possible within their own lives.
