Board of Directors

Our board of directors is comprised of local individuals, bringing together a unique blend of skills and talents that have helped to make this organization as successful and unique as it is. Our board also includes two youth from our EST program who serve one year terms, giving them an opportunity to help shape the program offerings and at the same time, gain experience in the organizational aspect of a not-for-profit organization.
