Trevor_Pontillo.jpgTrevor is a graduate of Lake Forest College and Dominican University with a Master’s degree in Social Work. Trevor started at Y.O.U. as an AmeriCorps Serve Member at Chute Middle School (go #TeamChute!), and joined the clinical team in 2015.

Being a part of Y.O.U. enables Trevor to pursue his passion of youth development behind a clinical lens. Trevor loves to run groups centered on creative interventions, cognitive behavioral therapy, and wilderness therapy. Trevor's newest project is called F.O.X. (Future Outdoor Explorers), which unites therapeutic wilderness techniques and resilience skills. This has taken Trevor and the youth he works with on amazing adventures to places like Mammoth Cave National Park and Starved Rock State Park.

In his free time, Trevor enjoys rooting for Chicago sports teams and exploring the outdoors.
