Our Volunteer Team of more than 50 talented and experienced individuals who devote time every week to help keep our clients on their paths to progress. They also play a critical role in ensuring that our programming continues to be fresh and relevant to today's trends. Volunteering with CTC is a great opportunity to expand your network, to be of service and to build new skills and resources for your career development.
