What are participants saying?

"I reflect about the things I learned...often. I think about the people I learned alongside of...often. I am thankful for those that led me through...often. I cant' say that about any other class I've been a part of!" -Missy Harris, DECL Graduate

DECL was special because of the "same small group of people which allowed us to create a community and strong relationships." -Becca Norton, DECL Graduate

"What set DECL apart was the experience of true self-development. Many times throughout the program, we were told that it was all about us for that day. We really were encouraged to focus on ourselves and self-discovery. It was a blessing to have time to set aside once a month to allow me to focus on me." -Allyson Williams, DECL Graduate
