Project Teams

The Leadership Team works year-round to coordinate the ins and outs of QTYMP, and weave together the work of the four project teams: Community Connections, Fundraising, Rogue Rainbow, and Camp Emerald. We welcome folks of all experience levels, ages, and interests to get involved with organizing QTYMP!
