This is Amanda's story.....

The Learning Exchange is the best thing for anyone who has given up hope, who thought there wasn’t a light at the end of the tunnel.  I had given up hope then I found a light at The Saint John Learning Exchange.

 

I have been going through some really tough times lately but nobody has given up on me.  My teacher is the one who pushes me on when I feel like giving up on my dreams.  I want to get my GED but there is always something stopping me.  Here people support you.  They…

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…

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.



When I was younger I did have a chance to go and finish my grade 12. It was at the tech in Moncton N.B. I got there the first day and they gave me some books, and I was on my own with no help from the teacher. At the Learning Exchange the teachers are willing to work with you one on one.…

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. …
