Change Lives with the CTCL Scholarship

Thousands of students and families have reaped the benefits of a CTCL experience and have been “changed” in ways that were unforeseen but graciously welcomed.

Your donation to the CTCL Scholarship fund makes the CTCL experience a reality for even more students and is a wonderful way to honor author Loren Pope’s wisdom and the ongoing work of CTCL in carrying forth his vision.

COVID-19 has affected everyone’s life, but has it affected your life enough to write about it?
