This workshop helped get my juices flowing and to begin thinking of my own emotional intelligence—what do I not think about on a regular [basis] to help me improve as a human being personally and professionally.

Community Workshop Participant

Facilitators did a really great job, especially presenting the content virtually. I believe they made everyone feel comfortable and moved at a good pace. The information was relevant, clear and helpful.

Youth Mentor Workshop Participant

I learned that it is imperative to be intentionally positive when dealing with the students. Practicing what I preach is the key.
