I have learned and grown so much from the experiences I have encountered during my time as a member of the Youth Services Board. The one thing that I will take with me from this class and on to future careers is that things need to be seen from different perspectives before a final decision can be made. While one person may see things one way, another person may see things another way and possibly make more sense. While one thing may seem so entirely perfect, another part may make you think twice, which was the case for some of the community benefit organizations we selected in regards to comparing their interviews, RFP’s, and oral presentations. It caused a big discussion and numerous opinions and thoughts were thrown at each other. However, it was because of that that we were able to come to a final decision that we all agreed upon and were satisfied with.
