“The relationships you form are not superficial; you get to know much more about the individuals, their skills and challenges. It has been a really enjoyable and educational experience. Very worthwhile.”

Elva Pearson, director of Learning Partners


“I’ve loved being a part of it, making new connections while both offering and receiving advice and support from an immensely varied and talented group of people. Stay for another year? You bet!”
