Another skill that I have acquired is the importance of team work especially when dealing with sociological challenges that have an implication on the economic performance of any country. This is evident on the initiative to involve various individuals including counselors, mentors, law enforcement officers, and clinical officers. Through the collaboration of the various professionals with diversified skills and experience, the problems faced by juvenile adolescent males will be significantly mitigated. Proper time management Proper time management and scheduling of activities is a major skill that I have gained though the program proposal. I have understood that for the success of any program, it is imperative to allocate adequate time to ensure each and every activity is effectively undertaken. In this program, the major activities included training on time management, counseling, training on the entrepreneurial skills, communication skills and group mentoring. To ensure that the participants will have adequate time to learn the various skills as outlined on the time table, I have indicated the time and the occurrence of the activities. In the same way, I have acquired skills on how to prepare a work plan that involves the date of the commencement of the activities as well as the deadline and the occurrence of the activities. This is a very crucial skill that I will put into practice during my future careers as a project manager.

These expenses include salaries, Medicaid, health insurance, professional dues, training as well as travelling and car allowances. By covering these expenses, employee’s productivity is improved and the continuity of the program is enhanced. Similarly, I have gained skills on how to undertake employee’s recruitment process to ensure that the activities of the program are on the hands of experienced and well educated personnel. Searching for sources of funds In my efforts to prepare the program proposal, I have gained skills on how to search for appropriate sources of funds that will provide adequate financial assistance during the implementation of programs especially those dealing with juvenile delinquency and youth education.
