Finding the Right People to Implement Your OrganWise Guys Program

We recently implemented The OrganWise Guys Comprehensive School Program (OWG CSP) in 80 schools across 31 counties in the great Volunteer State, with another 70 set to start down the road.

We are grateful for this collaborative effort and have thoroughly enjoyed learning some new ideas from these great new partners.TN20Melinda20McCartt20Organ20Wise20picture201.
