The key to our success is that all facilitators of the Affinities Group have decades of practical experience in applying effective learning techniques that ensure success; essential skills and education with an emphasis on experimental learning, instead of the conventionial classroom model. Affinities builds a strong, trusting, respectful relationship with each participant to match skill sets and lifestyle with a rewarding future.
