Volunteering

“I learned the different organizations in my community that are always in need of volunteers. There are always these organizations that allow me to give back to my community. What I learned that I wasn’t expecting is how each presentation non-profit organization was linked to one another in some way.” – Cierra Marks, 14

 

“I learned a lot from the session and actually plan on attending some of the volunteer opportunities. I loved hearing how they enjoy helping people and how they love their area of work.” – Nicole DeLuca, 16

Independent

“Ever since I joined this program, I’ve learned to become more independent and meet new people. I am able to see what it takes to be a successful and well-rounded person.” – Kevin Williams, 18

Helpful

“It’s hard to explain what specific things I learned in Project Success. I know I’ve learned so much but don’t realize it until I use it in real life situations. It will definitely help me in the future.” – Nick Traino, 15

Leadership

“I learned some core aspects of being a leader: to challenge the process, model the way, inspire a shared vision, enable others to act and encourage the heart. Another thing I learned that I liked was that patience is a virtue.” – Korrey Jiggetts, 17
