Select members of SciExcite attended the first session of TLC today! The experience was far more fulfilling than any of us had expected, and we are so excited to return next month and learn more about the other organizations participating in the training alongside us, as well learning how to expand our organization to its full potential.
Each group taking the course had the opportunity to build an asset map and present to the classroom, and every individual had such a unique story and purpose, but we all had one thing in common: we want to enrich lives and help people as much as we can.
SciExcite already has new techniques to implement into our own work, including "One-to-One's", which will be extremely useful this week as we interview potential candidates for SciExcite, and even the discussion of Ground Rules during our meeting.
Next month, we will have the opportunity to ride a bus through our community as each group shows us where they are from, and what portions of the area are important in their project. We are honestly so excited to keep learning with this group of individuals. Everyone was so warm and welcoming and interested in what we were doing, and it was a wonderfully rewarding experience!
