This paper gives me the chance to look back and reflect on what knowledge developing this program has brought me. Program planning, is something that has always fascinated me. I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about what are important aspects of planning a program. What was truly great about this experience was the idea that we would be helping others. I will discuss what I have learned from developing the program to the conclusion of the event.
