“It has been an amazing experience being part of the WIOA program. Working at a mortgage and real estate office has granted me an amazing experience. This program is the most remarkable experience I have ever encountered!”

– John Sais

Andrea graduated from YDI in May of 2019. She has big dreams of becoming an art therapist. Her only self-identified barrier was that she was so introverted and shy. She wanted to build her soft skills and learn how to communicate more effectively with others.”
