Susan L. Curtis Foundation Announcements: Kathryn R. Pierce as Executive Director and Matthew Cyr as Board Chair
Susan L. Curtis Foundation and Camp Susan Curtis Since 1974, the youth development programs of the Susan L. Curtis Foundation have been teaching critical life skills and character development to economically disadvantaged Maine youth from grades three through 12, removing barriers and shifting the trajectory to a path of promise and potential. Referred by their schools, youth return to Camp Susan Curtis year after year, transitioning as teens to CSC’s Bridge (SpARCs) and Leadership Development programs which continue with post-secondary access and career exploration programming. Camp Susan Curtis hosts about 500 Maine boys and girls ages 8 to 18 to teach life and leadership skills, including financial responsibility, visual arts, environmental stewardship, and literacy activities, in a residential camp setting. The majority of CSC Youth return year after year: 99% percent of those completing CSC’s leadership program graduate high school and 82% advance to college or other forms of post-secondary education or training designed to lead to a credential of value. The Camp’s award-winning programming is fully sponsored for every child by donations from corporations, foundations and individuals. Administrative offices are located in Portland.
