Opening Retreat

Self Discovery





"I have changed as a leader in that I know that anywhere I am, my ideas, thoughts, passions and hopes are not enough. I need others. I need to lean into others different from myself and value what they bring to the table, as it is only together that we are capable. As a person, I now can listen closer to hear what others say. I am a better listener and able to empathize with others. Awareness Washington County has improved me greatly."

"I feel I am more outgoing and sort of comfortable speaking in front of people. I feel I can better understand where people are coming from, ie., not being difficult but truly only seeing one perspective. I can now see from multiple perspectives."

"Don't judge a book by it's cover--each individual has struggles--it's how they choose to overcome them that makes them leaders."

"I have become more understanding. Going through this class has helped me learn the importance of accountability and how it helps my growth as a leader in the community, but most importantly at home with my family. I am raising our future leaders."

"AWC has helped me think outside the box, coming up with new ideas for my youth group. And help me facilitate with the youth group committee."
