The Phonathon is a very challenging and rewarding experience. While your mettle and spirits will be tested, your efforts support a great cause – Albright College! Don’t get discouraged if you find 10,000 ways something won’t work, you haven’t failed. Because every wrong attempt is just one more step forward…! There is no one perfect way here; we’re just trying to accomplish something. Surprises and let downs can serve as an incentive for great accomplishment!
