I came to this program with concerns of what will I be learning to gain employment. Little did I know that this program provided information for me to enact with a group of people that I never knew to make decisions and learn the business of the company that I would like to work with some day. there is much more I have learn and I am so excited, and it's only been one week. I look forward to the next two weeks in learning how to present and conduct myself for employment. Happy hunting.

well overall this class was very fun and i have gained a lot of knowledge. This experience very awesome if i must say i learned about my hometown in ways that i never even knew existed. The port of Baltimore instead of just the inner harbor,it taught me a verity of new things such as the longshoremen which is honestly my favorite well because my grand dad was one so i guess its in my blood so to speak. oh yeah my instructor Steve was a awesome and great help.

This place is AWESOME!!!! From the Maritime Transportation Knowledge and the availability of free clothing options for men. (Which is very difficult because a majority of non-profits are geared towards woman) ---DW

I was told about Maryland New Direction by a few friends and co-workers. No one knew what MND was about but being the person that I am, I wanted to experience new things, expand my horizons and hope for the best. I feel that MND will help me. I reserve the right to resubmit with I am done. LOL
