“I had dropped out of school; no time or transportation. I was dealing with a lot of adult problems at a young age. I was on the verge of homelessness and was receiving no education at the time I was introduced to St Joseph Youth Alliance. When I began classes, I was assisted with transportation and they placed me with a good career opportunity and I am earning money. I am getting ready to take my HISET test in a few weeks. My goal entering the program was to get my GED, have a good job, steady living situation, and go to college when I graduate. I am now where I want to be thanks to Youth Alliance. Teens or adult that needs help with any problems or wishes to have an education, I would recommend this program because there’s nothing these kind people won’t do to help you and it is an easy, smooth, stress-free program.”
