Greg Turner

I have learned an enormous amount of information from the Starkloff Career Academy program and it has shown me so much in not only job-seeking skills, but life skills, and how to carry myself moving forward.

Tricia O’Brien

I learned to take my disability and turn it into a strength, into the ability to thrive in difficult or challenging situations. I also learned to take accomplishments and successes of my career, to build on them, and to turn them into tools to finding meaningful employment, which I have done thanks to Starkloff.
