Our first session of our First Apprentice Crew was a success. The first task was to come up with the Principles the Crew would uphold. Much like the Ambassadors of Kindness for our after school program, the First Apprentice is designed to support character development, especially with regards to the work environment. So our Crew put their heads together and came us with some fabulous ideas.
First and foremost was Good Manners. We don't always see that these days, especially in teenagers. Next was Communication- Wow! That is something we all need. Then, Reliability: be on time, and on task, next was Respect: for coworkers, the customer and their things. Finally, the crew came up with Honesty! What more can you want from contractors?
They started our first job of painting Melanie's room. She probably wouldn't have appreciated the mural of random colors, that was more my style. So it was to be painted a subtle and neutral greyish purple. The finished product was beautiful if I do say so myself. Great work on our first project!
