The World Class Assistant™ course combines tried and true training techniques with innovative and engaging methods to ensure that you walk away with an in-depth understanding of the course elements. Your three days will be spent participating in thoughtful individual assessments, stimulating group activities, rigorous skills practice, energizing team competitions, creative learning props, career-related case studies, and robust hands-on projects.

August 7, 2018 –    Why Volunteering Makes a Difference.

Thanks to all who participated in the Silicon Valley Catalysts Association (SCVA) “Sweet Bags for Foster Kids” charity event this past Tuesday night. It was great seeing everyone's creativity kick in as the group completed 38 “Sweet Cases” in record time. These much-needed supplies, hand crafted with lots of love, will be distributed to foster kids in the Fresno area. 

It was my pleasure and honor in being a part of this endeavor, and why volunteering makes a difference…just a little effort goes far. For more details on how you can implement a “Sweet Case” team building event, drop me a note and I’ll be glad to share my experience. @Joanne Linden
