The application is to help us get to know you better so we can cultivate an atmosphere of community, friendliness, and willingness to learn at our events. We ask you not to treat our intentional work as just a service to get discounted climbing lessons. Please only apply if you believe in our mission, are looking to be part of a community, and want to create connections with Black, Indigenous, and racialized folks. Colour the Trails is committed to creating a welcoming space for LGBTQIA2S+ individuals.
