Many Faces, One People
This training is a hands-on interactive workshop designed to guide participants in recognizing the sources of their own attitudes and worldview and deal constructively with issues that arise out of human differences in workplaces, communities and institutions. Since we are a multicultural society, it is our aim to meet the diverse needs of all people. People must develop positive feelings about themselves and others in order to become well-adjusted productive members of society and transcend over generalization and stereotyping.
Microwave Candy
Many of us learned to make candy on the stove top using family recipes. Standing over a cook top while stirring constantly dealing with the messy cleanup typically goes hand-in-hand with candy making. Microwaves can bring something new to the old way of making candy. Join us as we look at how a microwave can save you time and effort in candy making.
