If you could tell one story from your experience at Project Transformation, what story would you tell?
One time, James (Christ’s Foundry Site Coordinator) was speaking about respect. Two of our kids who are known to cause some trouble opened up and shared a time when James had spoken one-on-one with them about respect. They both remembered what took place and demonstrated learning from this. It was a serious and cute moment.
