I use skills and tools I learned in JOFC almost every day.  Community partners have commented on my facilitation skills, and I have been asked to facilitate more meetings, which is a big part of my job. JOFC has had a big impact on me in my personal life, as well.

I wanted to thank you for a valuable experience last week. I gained tools which will aid me in future facilitation, which was my goal. What I didn’t expect to receive was further insight to what makes me “tick” – this part was surprising and personally very valuable. Thank you for the candor, integrity and being so authentic.
