"When I first started Getting Ahead I wasn't even sure I was going to finish. But to my surprise, I'm going to miss this class when it's over. I came in with a closed mind and will walk out with a new open mind. I have met a great group of people and caring instructors."
"Things take time I understand, but understanding how to formally speak to people you get more respect. Every week, my life has improved. I applied for school and a Pell grant. I applied for a job but unfortunately didn't get it. But that's one job out of a hundred and I won't give up."
"I am thankful I was told about this Getting Ahead class. It has inspired me to do better with my life. To strive for middle class and get my children out of poverty. I want them to be able to live in middle class and not struggle as I have for the last 4 years."
