Hear from Program Graduates
So many great things have happened in my family since graduating from the program. We attended classes and gained so much knowledge that it made us better.”
My kids definitely need the unlimited Wi-Fi…Having all girls, their safety is always our No. 1 priority! With the hotspot, the girls now have access to call us or text us if they need anything and when they are on the bus.
The laptops we received help [my children] complete missing assignments and get caught up… I’ve seen a drastic increase in their grades. The biggest victory is that my oldest daughter will graduate on time. She went from not caring about graduating to now wanting to attend community college!
I struggled in the beginning, and it was frustrating, but my parents helped me catch up. Toward the end of training, I was helping my parents!
[The program] helped me create a better resume to obtain a better paying job.”
Thanks to the Google Suite Training Class, I am able to communicate via email, open and save documents, and help my kids with homework. The kids use their laptops every day for schoolwork.
