ROOTs Transition, located in Park City, Utah, serves females 14-18 years old who have attachment, relational and/or developmental trauma utilizing a hybrid model of outdoor reflection and residential integration. We are a small community of individuals dedicated to providing intentional programming with a trauma informed approach. Reclaiming Our Original Truths (ROOTs) serves as a guiding principle for our students in their healing process.

As a guide at ROOTs, you will impact the lives of our students by building relationships through meaningful conversations, shared experiences, and acting as a role model.
