'My experience here at Youth Corps was awesome! I had a great time. It was an opportunity that comes once in a lifetime and I’m glad I took advantage of it. I made new friends and connected with some old ones. This program has helped me in so many ways. I’m so thankful for this experience.'

"My experience at Youth Corps has been very helpful. I have learned many life skills from the staff. The most important one is that I learned how to communicate with other people. If I knew anyone that had dropped out of school and was struggling, I absolutely would send them here to get the help that they need. I have also made new friends and reconnected with some old friends while in Youth Corps. This is one of the best experiences I have had in a long time."

"I don’t know where to start. I am so happy that I attended Youth Corps. This experience was amazing. Being here really opened my eyes to go to college and start my future. In the beginning, I didn’t think I would love being here as much as I do now. All of the staff has an amazing heart and will help you the best that they can. I have met amazing people and worked placed I never thought I would be. This is the best place for people who need a second chance at making the most of their futures."
