What Participants Say

“No longer will I hold back!  The Your Town Alabama program exceeded my expectations.  Going home to recruit more decision makers and leaders to attend next year.  The workshop is very much worth the investment of money and time.”

– Quote from YT Class Participant.

“This is the workshop full of love, information and learning to help build our community.”

– Quote from YT Class Participant.

“The ideas and connections you will make from Your Town won’t compare to any other conference.  I’ll use the energy, connections, ideas, and knowledge for years to come.”

– Quote from YT Class Participant.

The YourTown Alabama workshop was like no other conference or meeting I’ve attended–in the very best sense. I probably can’t do justice to the thought it has provoked, the energy it inspires, and the hope it gives. Thank you so much. I hate that we can’t come again year after year! I will, though, send names of people who will benefit from and use its wealth of information and resources.

– Quote from YT Class Participant.

“Your Town Alabama helped me see the people who truly are about Alabama and want to do something about it.”
