Team Quest works with a variety of groups (youth, corporate, and more) to develop team-building skills, increase trust, and build confidence. The revenue generated by Team Quest directly supports True Friends' mission to "provide life-changing experiences that enhance independence and self-esteem for children and adults with disabilities".

TQ is the best job I’ve ever had. Honestly. Whenever parents and teachers would ask if I enjoyed working for TQ, I would respond with, “How could I not? I get an office with a view” and I’d gesture to the surroundings. Another great thing about working at TQ, the staff comes from various backgrounds, but everyone is so accepting of everyone else.

Being employed at team quest has challenged me to grow exponentially inside and out. Challenging these various groups that come to our program and watch them grow and change in front of my eyes is hard to put into words.
