My experience here at Urban Ed has been a very good experience. I have gotten a lot out of this program in the short time that I have been here, things like more administrative skills and a lot more about computers and how to deal with people coming in the office and managing the phone lines. Also how to work with a very good organization most of all with Ms Williams and Ms Browne who are a very good group of people to work with. I was sent here to work at Urban Ed to do administrative assistant work by a place call project empowerment and I think that project empowerment couldn’t have sent me to a place. I think a lot of people should come to get all that urban Ed is trying to give to the community. The people in the community can’t get anything like this anywhere in the D.M.V. area. Urban Ed is the place for all people young and old and all that urban Ed is giving I will love to be a part of this organization, there is nothing like it out here.

Urban ED has been there for me when I felt I was at my lowest point. Urban Ed has given me the opportunity to become a Certified Professional and to gain crucial skills that would prepare me for life's journey! Thanks Urban ED!

Urban Ed is an excellent program, for the kids and adults. Joining this program was one of the best decisions that I have made. Urban Ed changes lives. Although my last experience was a little over a year ago, I still keep in touch. The program gave me the education, experience and confidence that I needed to really move forward in life. And for that I would like to extend my hand to say thanks for everything. To Ms. Williams and the rest of the Urban Ed staff keep up the good work.
