Community Action Team ( CAT )- A group of local individuals (like you!) with a vested interest in economic development, literacy, and a passion for children!
The CAT is responsible for three main tasks: Public Relations, Registrations, & Fundraising Opportunities in its own community. Each CAT differs in composition in every county but as a rule, five to ten members make up the core. Naturally, the more diverse the CAT , the more successful getting the message out, registering children, and gathering support for the program.
