“I’ve been employed with SuccessLink since I was a teen and working through SuccessLink has improved my professional development. My summer jobs taught me public speaking, project management and community engagement skills. I also enjoyed learning about municipal government and just overall how to be a better youth advocate.” - Stephen, 20
