"The AAUL is a wonderful organization that helps people to succeed in their journey and finding their career. The AAUL has helped me improved my skills in Microsoft Office Suite; communication skills and has afforded me opportunities to grow as a professional. I am grateful they have support like the State Farm Good Neighbor Citizen Grant to offer programs like the ones that have helped me."
- Domonica I.

"I care about our community and I believe it's never too late to educate yourself on current technology. The AAUL has helped me learn new technology, now I am an asset to the tech hub of America."

"I love everything about the AAUL, they changed my life and helped me overcome many obstacles. I love you all! Thank you for helping me see the light when at times I felt I walked in the dark."

"I valued the structure of the classes. People can learn at different levels and take their time. I was able to witness people coming into the class; not knowing how to turn on the computer. AAUL teaches skills needed to get you to work NOW! Everyone needs a support system when they are trying to get on their feet. AAUL has a vast support system; from computer, job training to financial literacy"
