We have a range of clients who invite our professional staff to their communities to lead our 2-hour inspirational, audience-participatory TTO event, including:

We can include on stage with us one student from each of the co-sponsoring groups, giving each the spotlight for a time, so that each group feels a sense of “buy in” for the event.
