I was impressed with the classes they are giving here at DCDC. Mr. Hightower, Sharon, Anthony, and all the other professors/speakers that come through here give us hope and much information and support on a daily basis. They fill us with inspiration and motivation each day, letting us know we are here to move forward with our life by the end of the road.

I am thankful for this program because it has given me an opportunity to learn a new trade, and maybe even more important, it gives me hope that in the future the job market will get better. This class is a positive motivation because of the people who speak to us from day to day. All in all this program is going to make anybody who goes through it, and applies themselves, to be an all around better person.
