Cliff is our regular PERSONALITY DIMENSIONS® facilitator for the Youth Employment Bootcamp program at Tong Louie Family YMCA in Surrey. His calm and supportive presence, coupled with his enthusiasm for Personality Dimensions engages our participants and helps them to retain what is a lot of information about themselves and their temperaments. Every participant walks away with a new appreciation for where they excel, what they could work on and how they tend to interact with others and the world. He truly makes an impact in our program and we hope we can work with him over the next 3 years of our contract!
