"At a time in my life that I was at a crossroads and needed some direction, The ECWTP fell into my lap.  Ms. Lynch and Ms. Carter provided me tools I needed and opened my eyes to possibilities I had not considered - I call them my guardian angels.  They still guide, support, motivate and encourage me today, and I am so grateful for that.  This program will change your life."

Innovative Emergency Management

"The Environment Career Workers Program was so much more than a program.
Educationally it endowed me with knowledge and opportunities that I never thought existed.
The day to day learning environment was robust and allowed for real world interaction
which helped to open my mind to all of the possibilities. The staff was amazing and assisted
not only me but the entire class to reach new heights in our lives and careers."
