|"You can’t go back and change the time from past events, but you can change this moment and the many more moments to come! Working at In Her Shoes has helped me grow to become the person I wanted to be and it helped me build confidence! Every workshop builds character that gives you value and better understanding of yourself." - Youth program graduate|
Group and 1:1 learning:
|"I really did learn a lot of things and not just that… I also built my confidence over time and came across a great change for the better. It was really awesome, as well, to have that emotional support and, at the same time, have the financial support so I could pause and not stress for a while, while actually being able to work on myself, my skills, my confidence, my appearance, my self esteem and so much more!" - Youth program graduate|

|"These past four months have definitely helped me improve on certain aspects of my life and it feels so freeing and powerful. If there’s any advice that I could give you, I would have to say not to give up. Of course, there are going to be a few points throughout the program that you’ll find more difficult than others, but you can’t give up. The instructors, and even the participants (who will most definitely become your friends, by the way) are more than willing to help guide you through it." - Youth program graduate|

|"This program is for you to learn and grow at your own pace 一 everyone is different. That's okay! That's why this program rocks, because you meet some interesting people. It’s helped me feel more confident not only in a workplace, but also helped me view people differently from how I feel about them in general. It also helped me and encouraged me to have more patience and kindness towards myself." - Youth program graduate|
