Not The Average Children

As a teenager in transition, Ty Gonzalez didn't realize how much he was seeking community — until he found it.

Through weekly outdoor adventures organized by MTNS2SEA, Ty found the camaraderie and mentorship that had been lacking in his home life. Discovering new pursuits in the great outdoors helped to instill a quiet sense of confidence, which he has carried with him ever since.
