A few words from our learners

“This training has built my self-confidence, giving me a better understanding into the way I was feeling. It has opened doors for me by having guest speakers with a lot of information… sources that I would not have been aware of if I hadn’t taken this course.”
– Elizabeth Gagnon

“This training was not something planned for. I’ve been job searching in what I thought was my field (office) and I discovered certain strengths that I may have overlooked. I understand where I am going to put my efforts and I still have a way to go but, I have Tri-County Literacy Council’s support. Thanks.”
– Sharron Greffe

“They (Tri-County Literacy Council) have wonderful upgrading classes and a great learning environment. I was able to learn about myself and set a goal to get back to work.”
– Chantal Lavictoire

“… the instructor is great and you meet many interesting people (guest speakers). The agency is very helpful in accommodating you. This training helped me to become more assertive and confident.”
