What You'll Learn:
Leadership Skills, enhance communication and people skills, time management, tact and diplomacy.
What We're Looking For:
People with lived experience with good communication skills, an empathetic nature who are able to be non-judgemental and accepting of other people and their lifestyles. Good listeners.
