TRAK is a 501 (c) (3), not-for-profit program focused on children with and without specific challenges. The focus of the program is to offer participants opportunities to provide service to people and animals of the community. This gives an often-rare experience to be a service provider to those less fortunate. Participants will receive specific educational skills, business, and vocational training that will aid in their efforts to help themselves, each other and their community.
"Children: Teach them to be kind to animals. They will grow up also kind to people."
TRAK's Founder: Jill Prickett-Tilley
Mrs. Prickett-Tilley has a Master's Degree in Special Education and Rehabilitation with an emphasis in Emotional and Behavioral Disturbances. She has taught in psychiatric facilities, residential treatment centers and in the psychoeducational field in the public school system. In her past programs she has offered the youth opportunities to volunteer in their community. Through these experiences she has found that service is a powerful way to build a person's self-esteem.

"We love this place. We need to get back there. My daughter absolutely loves going there. She is autistic and the staff there always makes it a great time when she is there. She loves playing with the pigs and the donkeys. Next goal is to do the horses. Thank you TRAK for having a place for us to enjoy the animals and have therapy at the same time. K.R., Tucson."
