“Without community service, we would not have a strong quality of life. It's important to the person who serves as well as the recipient. It's the way in which we ourselves grow and develop.” – Dorothy Height

Community Education & Training

  • We organize seminars, workshops, and mentorships to help our people improve their communication skills, gain expert knowledge, network with others and renew motivation and confidence.
