“While in the Rising Above Program I learned a great deal of new ways to go about finding my ideal job situation. I learned how to prioritize my smart goals, make a viable plan to accomplish those goals, realized my ideal job objectives and learned how to write a proper cover letter, resume and JIST card. Maurice helped me find the missing tools that I needed and also instilled confidence in me to believe in myself to go out and get the job that I want and deserve.

I would like to thank Maurice Stevens and the Rising Above Program for giving me all this information to use as a stepping stone that will help me accomplish all my goals in life.”

“I have had a great experience in this class. I have learned a lot which I will keep with me for the rest of my life. Mr. Maurice Stevens is an excellent teacher and very inspirational. I have learned to over exceed the limitations which are of the mind. There are no limits! I would not take back any day spent in this class! It was all worthwhile.”

Mr. Stevens combined a motivational and engaging training style with a structured and pragmatic content delivery that was essential to our success in taking our Job Readiness program to a new level.  He also showed considerable skill in facilitating a service delivery change process with different stakeholders in our Workforce Development system.  Highly recommended.
