A simple thank you feels insufficient to capture the gratitude I feel for the amazing training experience had by our team. I was so encouraged watching our faculty explore and build excitement for Project Wayfinder. I appreciate our guides for giving of themselves, for sharing their stories, and for making space for our team to get to know each other and strengthen our relationships.
— Kim Townsend - Director, Crossroads College Preparatory School - St Louis, MO
