"The youth apprenticeship program has really opened my eyes toward the kind of work that is out there in the real world working towards a career goal that you have set. During the short time I’ve been working at Wilde East Towne Honda I noticed the different kinds of work that comes through the doors, and the different kind of jobs there are at a car dealership. I have had an amazing time working at a job, and a place that I actually care about--not a job that you can blow off. This program has shown me different kinds of people you work with at a workplace, not along everyone that is your age, but more so around the age of having a wife/ husband, and possibly kids. This program has taught me to be more responsible with my life, because one bad grade can take you out of the program, and take the opportunity and the experience away. So far it’s been amazing. You’ll get treated with respect and treated like part of the team, not like the lowest part of the food chain. I highly recommend this program to anyone and everyone interested in any of the available career fields, as it could show you what you want to do, and launch you into your career path."
