We appreciate the support of TLC parents. Because this is a leadership program, we insist that the student (not the parent) initiate and maintain contact with regard to their application and their place within the program. Students should have an email address that they will check regularly. Thank you!
“Serving in the TLC was fun, and helped me build confidence in speaking to groups of adults. I’m proud of what I accomplished, but also grateful to have helped with such an important mission.”
