Board of Directors

"CTW gives children a sense of belonging, being a part of a team, acceptance, responsibility, hard work, and most of all, joy – so important to children at this age.  That is why I am still involved long after my child moved on!  That's why so many of us on the Board are still volunteering our time!"
