"Because of The Job Foundation, I was introduced to a lot of great people that continued to play a big role in my life even after high school graduation. I will graduate from Iowa State University debt free because of the impact of The Job Foundation. I continue to share the skills I have learned and adopted with my peers and soon my students as I enter into my career as an elementary school teacher."

"Besides the financial aspect of it, The Job Foundation has allowed me to be a part of a family. I've met lifelong friends through this program. It's helped me to view and understand the importance of dealing with your money properly. The Job Foundation has showed me that giving just a little can go a long way... Personally, I wish every kid growing up had a program like this to experience. It has definitely been a life changing experience."
