Student Opportunities

ā€œIdeal Youth is a great program and I have learned a lot from it. What I liked most about Ideal Youth that they tell you what you need to know about becoming successful and then let you experience it. All the things that I have experienced this summer will and has helped me in being a successful young lady.ā€




"Ideal Youth has taught me many new skills and has shaped me into a more professional person. Although ideal youth wasnā€™t the easiest program to complete I dearly appreciate the programs high expectations. The program helped me get an understanding of what the work world is like and helped me get an idea of what career I want to pursue. Ideal Youth helped me prepare for future jobs and career opportunities.ā€
