Starting in September, TREX, Inc, is a 21-day transitional intervention program for adolescents in need of immediate program adjustment. It is specifically designed to assist educational consultants, families and specialty schools requiring intervention during the admissions or re-evaluation process of long-term placements.

Giving the increasing demand for - and rapid growth of - specialty schools with personal growth and development components, frequently a new student may have difficulty adapting to the expectations and challenges of their environment. Our program lends itself to extending the orientation process for these ‘hot spots’: appropriately-placed students in need of specialized attention that will enable a better understanding of their school’s requirements and opportunities. Our transitional intervention program also serves as an introduction to basic curriculum procedures for students awaiting admission into a specialty school.

TREX, Inc.’s three-week program is year-round, and takes place in Central Oregon’s beautiful Ochoco and Williamette National Forests. Our staff consists of professionally trained and experienced counselors, educators, wilderness guides and assistants. TREX, Inc. is a 21-day transitional intervention program that utilizes the wilderness a medium for personal growth.

Gabriel and Anne Rivera, M. A., are co-founders and directors of TREX, Inc. Gabriel Rivera has worked as an outdoor experiential educator and counselor for a variety of educational and recreational organizations during the past 17 years, serving as wilderness director, counselor and teacher for the Mt. Bachelor Academy in Central Oregon, and The Cascade School in Northern California. Anne Rivera holds a masters degree in psychology and has worked in the fields of counseling, education (public and private organizations) and personnel administration. Recognizing the vital need for curriculum that supports holistic education, the Riveras are committed to assisting in the promotion of specialty schools that offer enhanced learning experiences to today’s youth.
