I believe experience is the best teacher so I have to give credit where it is due when it comes to certain attributes that have served me well in my studies and interpersonal relations. Such attributes are as follows:

  • diligence when doing what needs to be done
  • a team player mentality that focuses on how best to improve the situation for the most good
  • confidence to assume responsibility when the need arises
  • and most of all, seeing others as people of value no matter their creed, color, or faith.

EOPS is a safe training ground for becoming the kind of people you yourself would want to be working with. That's why people from this program always remember EOPS with a smile.
