I would not recommend this program to anyone. Once enrolled participants have to sign a contract which requires that they pay large sums of money. They have only helped a few people to find jobs. People can get help and find jobs without this program. They present themselves as a caring group of people....until you join the program or have to work for them. This is a hostile work environment for anyone who is honest with management. This organization completely misrepresents who they are and what they are truly about. The Empowerment Course is a scam. The information in this class can be gotten any where on line or in any self help book. This organization does not practice what it preaches. It's hard to find bad reviews about them because management makes employees sign a confidentiality agreement not to discuss what actually goes on in this organization. Stay away from this program. Don't get sucked into paying unnecessary monies. I hope the City of Minneapolis and St. Paul will close this program down.

I would completely shut down this organization. If participants and employees can not tell the truth about what goes on there this organization needs to be closed.
