  • Workplace professionalism
  • Anti-racism
  • Identification of gifts, strengths, and passions

  • Spirituality and self-worth

“Show up on time, do my work. Because we are getting paid to work here, it is a job. I take it seriously. We are like a family here, we work together make it easy here, because we all are a team.” Joshua Quewon-williams, YSA 2014 Fall Aspirant.
