CTC is a non-profit organization made up of a group of concerned and caring community members. These members joined various workgroups that meet once a month to work together on making Marinette & Menominee Counties a better place to live. We focus on root causes of many different problem behaviors based off of what the youth survey and our community tells us. This only works if the COMMUNITY is involved and doing the work! No special skills or job positions are required. We just need YOU. Please consider joining us!
Are you passionate about what we're doing? Let us know! We are always looking for volunteers to help us make our vision a reality. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you. Please check out the 7 different workgroups to see which one you'd like to get involved in! No specific or required skill is needed - just wanting to make the community a better place for our youth is all you need to possess!
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you!
Your generous gift will help us fund our mission to help those in need. Together, we can make a difference.
Our workgroups usually meet once a month for about an hour...check out the workgroups tab to see when each group currently meets, check our calendar, or contact us to let us know when you have availability or where you would like to help!
