  • "I’ve done other programs like this before, but this one was far better than any other. I felt a real connection to all the staff and felt comfortable discussing my problems with them. I loved my class as it gave me new insights into what I might do in the future, and lastly it introduced me to new people who I hope to stay in contact with for years to come."
