"yourtown saw me as an individual, identified my strengths and talents, and gave me an opportunity to make a difference and be part of the community."
- Ethan, young person
"I've never worked around a lot of people; I wasn't really talking to many people. Doing this program really built me up. It has been really good for me."
- Ihaia (19) yourtown Employment and Training Program
"Never felt I belonged anywhere – made tons of mistakes with my life and everything in general. Was told about the yjyw program and thought that this was another program where I will stuff around in. In all honestly this was the best move that I have ever made."

"The best Job Placement provider I've ever had, I am truly sad that I had to leave. From my experience, they will help you get interviews and try their best to find the work that suits you most as well as helping pay for courses required PPE for work places. This team of amazing people are there for clients. They are purely invested in helping those looking for work and they are overall friendly, understanding and purely there for you. I'd like to thank Vic and Taylor for helping me to the best of their abilities and encouraging me to find work and helping me through a very tough time in my life."
