Youth Services Testimonial

I had the pleasure of working with Jennifer Swart with the Youth Program at Workforce Solutions and have had several youth working in our agency during the summer months which has helped us in our busy season and also gave me the opportunity to mentor the individuals and teach them work ethic. I highly recommend the Youth Program to other businesses!

I was a Sophomore at Amsterdam High School not knowing what to do with my life because I failed to achieve the goal of being a high school graduate, I was so caught up with the fast life of being teenager and partying like a rock star I forgot the more important things in life; I.e. getting an education. After watching all my peers graduate and go off to college to do bigger and better things, I continued to party, do drugs, and ruin the future that I could have. The Work Force Solutions have reached out to me early on in high school helping me with a summer job and doing homework. I took the GED program at the Work Force Solutions seriously, they reached out to me when no one else did, they cared for me, and gave me the courage and motivation to succeed and get my GED. After successfully receiving my GED, I was introduced to a Marine Recruiter who sat down with me and took me in like one of his own and talked to me about joining United States Marine Corps. I was scared at first but the more he talked the more I listened and became interested. Before joining the Marine Corps I had to get 15 college credits prior to entering the Marine Corps. Yet again, the Work Force Solution was there for me, and helped me get into Fulton Montgomery Community College. Throughout my college experience the Work Force Solutions helped me with homework, studying, and whatever else I needed to succeed in passing college. When I had the credits I needed to enter the Marine Corps. I shipped off to boot camp in August and gradated in November. I was then and now a United States Marine, it was one of the most memorable highlights of my life. I was stationed in Kaneohe Bay, HI for three years and six months. I completed two seven month long tours in Afghanistan and now currently working at the Chicago Military Entrance Processing Station. I am now married to a beautiful woman named Tatiana and have a handsome son named Antonio in which we are currently living in Chicago, Illinois. After the struggle I had been through, the Work Force Solutions and my family gave me the strength to get me where I am today. It was them that pushed me to do something that I really wanted to do but didn’t have the guts to do. So I want to thank the Work Force Solutions on taking their time on reaching out to me and giving me the opportunity to become the man and Marine I am today.
