Leadership Team

Leadership is about service to the community. While the magic of our mentoring happens in the forest, there is a team of servant leaders that work behind the screens to bring the magic of our programs to kids and our communities. Those leaders work with parents, our staff team, board members, and elders to co-create the mission of Two Coyotes.
