Testimonials

Youth Leadership Academy (YLA) parent:

“My daughter has access to her youth worker, whom she really loves and respects and this speaks volumes to the YLA programme! Your influence has moulded her to become a better person, she is executing what she has learned through the programme, and it makes me so proud to watch her grow. My daughter has made Principals List this term, she signed us up for a book club so, that we can spend more quality time together and she plans on attending Bermuda College in the fall. I know that being a part of this programme has influenced her in the most positive way. There have been multiple times when Family Centre has come to our rescue, times when I felt hopeless and did not know where to turn. The YLA programme provides consistent mentorship and support, something that is missing in our community. I feel this programme holds so much value and provides opportunities that my daughter would not have had.”

Beyond Rugby student:

“Beyond Rugby helps me stay focused and care more about my education. I keep up to date with my grades online and have learned more about my career and myself through the seminars we have had. I have learned to take losses as lessons, not as a beating. Beyond Rugby helps me stay proactive and out of trouble.”

Counselling Services parent:

“Being able to discuss our inner feelings and emotions in a safe, caring environment opened many issues that needed to be addressed. My daughter felt like she had a voice and that someone really cared enough to make the time to listen and help. For the first time in years, we are closer as a family. Instead of just talking, we are listening and being sensitive towards each other. Our bond has grown due to the fact that we set aside more times on the weekend for ‘special gatherings.’ I feel so much closer because of the tools I was given during my time at Family Centre.”
