different site?
Serve to Lead sites can be "messy" at times:
Expectations and responsibilities may be unclear
Supervisor may not always be present
Scheduling issues may arise
Understaffed and overworked
Clients may be different than you (culturally, socioeconomically, value systems, etc.)
Nonetheless you are still expected to:
TAKE INITIATIVE and make it work!
Things to Consider....
You may NOT switch sites once you have chosen.
If there are serious issues, come talk to Mimi.
