A Few Youth Testimonials

"From the start, American Youthworks has been like a shining beacon answering all my prayers and giving me so much hope and ambition towards really making something of my life and learning that not only can I help people but that I want to help people. Granted, I am just getting started and with this ongoing pandemic slowing things down quite a bit I haven’t come very far in my journey to personal success yet but, seeing as how my first day there felt like a personal success inwardly I like to believe that almost every day since then had been a small win for me."

"Having information on where I can go next is important to me when I think about my career path. I want to know that my employer wants me to succeed and that they will work with me if I'm not always perfect. I'll try hard but still have a lot to learn"
