Being a career mentor has been a rewarding experience. Helping my mentee cope, strategize, and find solutions to her difficulties gave me a sense of accomplishment. I am privileged to have met my mentee and am willing to work with her indefinitely.

I am writing to express my gratitude. I want to thank you for your time commitment, and encouragement through the employment readiness program. As you know, my son’s circumstances are different than what you normally represent but, nonetheless, you choose to assist him anyway, and for this, I am very grateful. As a result of the employment training process, Victor is a much more confident and prepared young man. It has truly been an amazing experience to be a part of.

I practically lived on fast food when I first moved out on my own. I’ve always wanted to learn how to cook but never got around to it. In the cooking and nutrition class, I learned how to make good food on a low budget. I actually saved money by cooking instead of buying fast food. I can cook at least 6 different meals now and I like being able to feed myself.

Before taking the financial literacy class I was making late payments, cashing my checks at the check-cashing stores, and not focused on the money I was losing or the damage I was doing to my credit. Now I look at my finances differently, I’m budgeting, paying my bills on time, and improving my credit score. I’m doing much better.

Getting my divers’ license felt great. It was an important goal for me to achieve and it opened up more job options for me. Now I can apply for a job I’ve been interested in for a while. I’ll also be saving to buy myself a car as well.

I took the employment readiness class to help me find a better job. I got so much more out of the class than I expected. I learned business etiquette, practiced my interviewing skills and I have a career mentor for guidance and support.
