Building trust is the foundation for a healthy relationship. This Coursed Linked Capstone (CLC) in Training, dissect my learnings, practice in the field, self-investigated theories, and reflection in regards to exploring the process of building facilitated connections necessary in establishing cross-cultural trust. The paper starts with an insight into my process as a practitioner finding trust in my competencies. Through the process of my experience and research, I have found it fitting to illustrate my journey in a Cookbook which I title: What do you Bring to the Table? I utilize the Cookbook as a tool to communicate the process of developing cross-cultural trust to volunteer staff at my current practicum site LEAP for Education. What do you Bring to the Table? Compares the concept of preparing food to the components necessary for being a successful volunteering at the LEAP for Education’s Teen Center.
