Quotes from past participants:
“CVYS’s Youth Employment Mentorship Program is an excellent service to the public, and I could not be more grateful. The CVYS culture is warm, welcoming, and practically supportive. Attending YEMP has been a definitive turning point in my life, and an excellent launchpad into adulthood.”
“When I was accepted into the Y.E.M.P. program I felt a sense of belonging and relief. I was with others who were dealing with their own employment struggles and we were able to navigate through our situations together.”
“I would recommend this program to anybody who is struggling in any way with employment. You will truly walk away from the program with a greater understanding of yourself, as well as lots of new skills that can be put towards a job. You will find a community of people who are there to support you in every way.”
