Prepared. For Life.
Welcome to the Thunderbird District
Thunderbird District serves approximately 1,300 youth and is served by the support and dedication of over 700 adult volunteers.
Our primary focus is in these school districts, east of I-205:
Providing our quality program to these young men and women would not be possible if it was not for the support and dedication of over 1,000 adult volunteers of the Thunderbird District. Thank you to each and every one of you for your commitment to creating strong leaders and a better tomorrow.
