What Alumni Say

“I really enjoyed this program. The instructors were great with teaching us the material, making it fun by incorporating online quizzes and worksheets to make sure we understood everything and, if not, to ask questions. The skills and information we learned are never really taught to us and this was a great opportunity to learn skills such as interview prep and cover letter and resume writing. I learned a lot of new skills and information here which I believe are going to help my future career and employment.”

“First of all, I want to start off by saying a huge thank you to you both for all the continuous help throughout this course. I feel blessed to have met you both. I hope you all receive all the grants in the world to further this program. 

Thank you for taking the time to teach us daily and to push knowledge into us. That will help better our experience in the workplace and in our personal lives. I will take all of these powerful teachings and try to impart them into others. Just like my teachers did with me. Thank you for the encouragement every step of the way that helped me feel motivated and prepared to progress in my life. I will honestly look back at this moment as one of my greatest achievements in my adult life. Thank you for being a part of my achievement and along my journey! I can assure you all that you will not be forgotten.”


“During the time I have spent at this program, I have learned many essential skills. We were able to discuss many topics including self-esteem, monitoring goals, decision making, and anger management. I have also been given the opportunity to hopefully gain a job by attending an interview. I am appreciative of everything this program has been able to help me with.”
