Student
As a Newcomer, joining NEEDS Centre's Employment Program was one of the best decisions I made when I came to Canada. It really helped me a lot and it gave me plenty of hope to not give up and continue working hard. Dealing with a new country with different culture and language barriers is hard and will never be easy. The Employment Program helped me gain new skills such as small talk so that I can behave professionally when I am at my workplace.

One thing I learned at NEEDS Centre Employment Program is that you need to move away from your comfort zone so you will know yourself much better. The NEEDS Centre helps me if I am having a hard time doing my homework and if I am looking for a job. I really appreciate and love each everyone at the NEEDS Centre because all of them are amazing, especially Ms. Margaret, who I love so dearly. I am graduating from high school because of all of their support and guidance. Thank you NEEDS Centre for everything!

My experience at NEEDS was one of the most important experiences I have ever had, and I will never forget it. They helped me through the difficult times as an immigrant when I was looking for a job. They teach us about employment by making workshops and interviews, and I am very thankful for what they have done for me.
