Previous staff testimonials:

“I have learned mostly to be confident in myself, which definitely aids me in my ability to talk to customers. I also had an AMAZING CPR instructor, and without her I wouldn’t be as confident in performing CPR in my new job in healthcare as I am now. I had opportunities to lifeguard, teach swim lessons, and manage the pool, which made me pretty well rounded.”

"Thus far, I have gained invaluable interpersonal relationship skills from working with coworkers. Working with teams at the city's golf courses has provided me with an increased ability to connect with a wider range of people among different backgrounds and age groups. Insight into administrative work as well as the skills needed to manage a team and customer relations has provided me with more confidence to carry into a future career."

"Leaderships, team working skills, task prioritizing, cleaning skills, service, ability to work with kids, professionalism, patience ... the list goes on."

"Writing and communication abilities have increased positively. I have learned how to communicate more effectively in a workplace. Technical skills such as surveying, hazard assessments, plant identification, data management and volunteer management."

"I've gained experience: Speaking in front of others, doing physical tasks like landscaping and gardening, driving a big truck, working with a team and planning events."
