What some of our alumni said:
[It showed me] I could do better and be better every day.
I learned a lot about myself. That I could do things that I thought I could never do.
If I was never in the program I probably would have been selling drugs or working dead-end jobs. Instead, I’m a freshman at Indian Hills studying culinary.
It changed my ways of seeing things. I’m now in college for automotives. If I wasn’t in the program I probably would be working some odd job or in a factory. I see I can do more for myself now.
It taught me to be more involved in the community and helped with networking skills. I’m a manager now at a restaurant in Hyde Park.
I learned construction, how to communicate with others, how to build relationships with staff members, and I learned how to make work fun.
