We’re halfway through our program and our 30+ Young Ambassadors just completed the Mental Awareness phase of the program. Our clinical therapist Shanna Williams led the way with confidence building exercises. Our corporate partner, Grow Exponential, generously provided our teams of Ambassadors, Young Ambassadors, and Interpreters tools to discover their personality and behavioral tendencies as we begin Working Better Together. And, many others generously inspired our young adults with workshops like “You Are What You Eat”.
Next up we begin our Skills Mastery phase where our Young Ambassadors will continue learning how to manage their time and talent in order to leverage their passion into the marketplace.
It has not been easy. In addition to socioeconomic barriers, Covid-19 restrictions and personal loss, these past few weeks have made for some of the toughest days our teams have experienced. However, together we continue to overcome these adversities with love and support while finding the strength to continue to move forward.
