What Our Clients Say

“My three months of Achēv's Employability Skills for Youth program was life-changing. The most important thing I gained from the program is understanding how to use your discovered strengths to choose the right career. This understanding motivated me to change my career to what I believe comprises my strengths. Now, I am currently in my third semester at Fanshawe College and looking forward to a successful and bright future, all thanks to my life-changing experience at Achēv.”

Godwin N.

“The Achēv Employability Skills for Youth program taught me the value of finding a work environment that fits your needs. To put aside my fear of stepping outside of what was familiar to me. Most importantly, it taught me techniques for applying to each job post with intent. This program left me with the tools and resources to not just navigate a job, but a career, or any stage of a job workplace environment in between. I now work in the insurance field, where within months I have been designated to train other employees.”

Monique S.

“I needed to get back out into the workforce, and I found that the Achēv Employability Skills for Youth program had everything I needed to feel comfortable enough. The greatest benefits have definitely been getting to know myself better through the work, getting to figure out what my real goals are, and getting that push to get them done. I really appreciated that I could get in touch with the staff and the kind attitude and patience I received back.”

Scott H.

“I was definitely intimidated by the idea of joining the workforce again. The thought of having to go through the whole process from start to finish was daunting and felt hopeless. Achēv’s Employability Skills for Youth program made the process smooth and painless. They were my "inside connection" and that took all the stress out of job hunting for me. They actually made it fun!”

Hafsa A.
