I feel that this on the job training was something that continuing education couldn't compare to!
I feel incredibly lucky to work with UCCE Fresno and the opportunity to engage in trainings with a broad range of people has been awesome! I am a community oriented person, and the Grizzly Corps community as well as my work community have both been rewarding to work with.
