As you begin your sponsorship journey, use this manual to answer questions, learn about best practices, and prepare for the months ahead. The information offered here will supplement your regular meetings with your CWS staff point of contact and will be a touchpoint to reference throughout your sponsorship.

Although this manual is directed toward CWS-partnered sponsor groups, much of the information presented here can still be a useful resource for sponsors who are not affiliated with an organization.
