Most rewarding feature of working at POTP
“The most rewarding aspect of working at Panthers on the Prowl is watching the growth and development of our young people as they engage in challenging and rewarding opportunities that otherwise they would not have been afforded without the involvement of the Prowl. Seeing your life’s work have a real and lasting positive impact in a young person is such a special thing – it’s what life is about”.
