My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Five Town Communities That Care, Rockport, ME, USA
I've been involved with FTCTC since its inception. I was at the initial training events held at the local YMCA in 2003 and have served in some capacity ever sense. I am currently part of the Community Coalition and on the Youth Involvement Workgroup.
I have run a Youth Forum at the High School, taught the Guiding Good Choices parenting classes, and served in various other capacities.
The successes are well documented.

FTCTC has brought together all segments of our community - building relationships and improving communication amongst all of us who work with teens. Rather than just putting our community's weight, money, and efforts behind someone's pet project, the programs implemented are all tested and effective programs. The programs are strictly tracked and evaluated to ensure fidelity to the program and effectiveness - as such, we know we're not wasting our time/efforts/money and have concrete evidence we are truly making a difference.
Frankly, I can not speak highly enough of FTCTC and the work that they continue to do in the Five Town community.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My work with teenagers in our church and in the larger community. Slowly FTCTC is making an impact that is changing the very culture of our community.
