This is Ricky's story.....

I have been attending evening classes at the Saint John Learning Exchange for almost a year. I am attending this class so I can read and spell words to my kids. It will be real nice to get my GED too. It would make me feel more of a dad and a man.

 

Public school was very hard for me because at the time I could not read or spell at all. Later on when I got older some of it came to me, but now in my classroom I feel real good and in the end I will get my GED. Life was really…

"Integrity is Everything"

We go through life looking after others and then one day things change. We have aged, fallen ill, had surgery and now we need help. Don't be left alone when you can call for quality care from a home care provider. Personal care, light household duties or just for someone to assist you while you heal. We have compassionate HSW and PSW who are bonded and can work from 2 hours to full days and overnights. Some of our staff drive clients to appointments and on errands. Be safe and comfortable in… Continue

This is Yvon's story.....

The Learning Exchange did change my life. I am a 48 year old male with an 8th grade education. Before I decided to go back to school I always had a hard time to find a good paying job.

This is Mark's story.....

I took an important step to increase my knowledge on the nine Essential Skills required for success in today’s workplace.  The TIES 2 Work Program did just that.  This twelve week program taught me how to work as a TEAM, a team that was happy and productive.  The program also provided me the knowledge to interact with various age groups, personalities, and cultures.  It also helped me know what my levels were in the Essential Skills and bring them to what was required for my job placement. …
