Madalynn’s Story

I first became aware of the Learning Exchange through the UYES! (Urban Youth Employment/Education Services) program. Everyone there was so supportive and understanding. The atmosphere was welcoming and I didn’t feel the daily pressure I felt in traditional high school. As a mom, I found the class schedule very flexible. It was built around what I needed. Once I got my Adult High School diploma, we started to talk about the next step. I looked at welding at NBCC. I was good with my hands and the trades are in my family. Now I get to use all the skills I learned at the Learning Exchange at college every day.
