I came to ISLES for BPI Energy Auditor and Installer training. I really enjoy and benefit from the knowledgeable instructors, resourceful labs and friendly and helpful staffs. Lessons were presented clearly, class exercises were carefully design to illustrate the essence, and instructors were well-qualified and prepared for the classes. This is a great place to learn and I highly recommend ISLES for anyone looking for energy efficiency training.

Isles YouthBuild Institute Hosted an Image is Power workshop to show some of the success the school has accomplished in the community. At the workshop, we talked about volunteer work students participated in, gardening, construction in the community, litter marches, and other Isles events. Students have shown the community and the organization that there is a positive part in Trenton that will be successful. Students are showing some of the life skills and different leadership skills that students learned and can use in the future. The program has graduated many that have went on to college, also some who have went on to receive better career opportunities and have improved their lives.

I found out about the CEET program through a continuing education class that I was attending at Mercer County Community College. I had lost my job as a carpenter and was in the process of retraining myself in the the field of alternative energy. I sent my resume to Dr. Oswald on a Friday and she contacted me on Monday to set up an interview for a training course that she thought would benefit me. She was absolutely correct, the course in Building Analyst and Energy Auditing drew on my skills as a builder and connected them to my new interest in energy efficiency. the training course was fantastic, It was well organized and the instructor was very knowledgeable and the Isles staff were very supportive. I was able to complete the training, and with their continued help and support I was able to obtain my BPI Certification. I am now confident that I will soon be reentering the workforce with my new skill set. Recently I was contacted by the staff at Isles about additional training to comply with the new EPA guidelines for contractors. It is this kind of follow through that makes me so appreciative of the CEET program and Dr. Oswald and the staff at Isles. I can honestly say that my experience at Isles has been 100% positive and I feel that I would do anything for them to repay all they have done on my behalf.

The Great!

The training that I received was excellent. I am so much more prepared to enter the workforce with a skill set that makes me a more attractive employee or able to start a business of my own. I have had several interviews and employers are impressed.

My experience at the YouthBuild Institute has been life changing. Not only has Isles helped me grow to be an understanding mother but an outstanding person. It help me understand and focus on things that I really wanted to do with myself, like go back to school and get a job. They gave me a drive to get back there. Thanks to Isles I'm pushing for me.

Working with the staff and volunteers at Isles is like working with family, as long as there is something they can do for you they would try there hardest.

For four years I have been involved with Isles, Inc. I started my journey with Isles back in 2006, as a Youthbuild trainee. I graduated from the program in 2007. After I graduated, endless opportunities came my way. Isles helped me attain many certifications, such as, OSHA, First Aid, and CPR, which would attract even the most guilded employers. As two years have passed, I've became such a well versed person in the Isles community. Being that I had so much passion for the organization, they gave me an internship that would give me a chance to broaden my horizon to many more life commencement skills. So it is now 2010, and I am still here at Isles working part-time. I don't know when this journey will end, but it doesn't matter, because I know when it does end, Isles will still be here to help other youth just as they did with me.
