  • I have friends that ask me how I always get jobs during the summer. I always say, ‘It was TeenQuest,’ and stress the importance of the program.

  • (In TeenQuest) I remember being taught interview techniques and how proper attire was an essential part in making a great first impression to stand out from the crowd. There were small group exercises focusing on team building and leadership skills, which was a great help. What’s stuck with me most was the focus on soft skills, like problem solving and time management.

  • TeenQuest helped me learn how to express myself in a professional way. Those lessons helped me when I was interviewing… I was able to demonstrate my passion with dignity and respect.
