AAAM2With one week down, our GTI 2015 Staff is back at Oxford College to make the final preparations for another full week of the program. We are re-energized and beyond excited to begin Week 2! As we are busy filling Family Group and Team Meeting bags, fine-tuning facilitation skills, replenishing the TI Store and doing countless other tasks to help us repeat all the magic, we want to share with you some noteworthy numbers about this year’s program. Did you know?

    • 45 Youth Action Teams
    • 310 participants
    • 30 Georgia counties represented
    • 18 workshop presenters and keynote speakers
