Congratulations to NTLP alum, Justin Knighten, for being appointed by Governor Gavin Newsom to serve as director of strategic communication and external affairs of California Volunteers. We are so proud of you Justin-keep making the world a better place! @gavinnewsom @californiavolunteers #ntlpalum #proud #california #sacramento #congratulations

Justin Knighten attended NTLP for three years, 2001, 2002, and 2003, and continued to return to staff programs for the next 10 years. As a young attendee, Justin gained a lot from NTLP. “When I first came to NTLP I was a pretty shy, passive person in high school and after one summer at NTLP it totally shifted my perspective on life and how to interact and really develop those one-on-one relationships that really help you achieve those monumental goals.” Clearly, Justin has made huge strides in developing his interpersonal skills and leading by example, while achieving his life goals as demonstrated by his recent appointment by Governor Newsom.

NTLP definitely supports Justin every step of the way and we hope to continually see him at our summer camps!
