A BIT ABOUT US
The Trinity Rangers are
a group of young people (ages 15-30) from the Lower Mainland excited to hang out, make memories and build life-long friendships. Our heart is to create spaces for young adults with intellectual disabilities and Trinity Western University students and athletes to come together and grow in community with each other. We might gather to play games, go to the movies or eat snacks but whatever we do, we laugh a lot and have a lot of fun. We meet bi-weekly providing an opportunity to create personal friendship. As opportunities arise, we also are excited to attend TWU sports games to cheer on our new friends and continue to build memories together. Subscribe to our mailing list to hear about new events and opportunities to be involved!

program in some aspect at TWU. As a
result, the Trinity Rangers were
