Testimonials

I absolutely love the fact that people were able to catch up on the course and that it was open to everyone at any time. I love that there wasn’t discrimination or hate toward any of us. Instead we were being encouraged to learn, we were taught skills that will help us in any field of study, work we choose. We were taught lasting skills, skills to make us stand out in the crowd. I love what AdaPt is doing for the youth community.
