“Before this program, I knew absolutely nothing about jobs or careers. I thought I was never going to do anything in my life because I knew nothing, but thanks to this program, it has taught me a lot not only about careers, but about myself and different ways to build skills and how to write resumes. I loved this program!”
“I had no idea what a Skilled Trade was or what jobs were included in Manufacturing. I learned so much.”
“I learned that the Healthcare industry is vast and contains many diverse careers outside of being a doctor or nurse. Other fields like Marketing, Housekeeping, and Information Technology are all involved in Healthcare.”
