What Our Clients Say About Youth Express

I was very happy with the service, especially the resume writing as it has changed since we last had to write a resume. This assistance took an enormous stress off our family. Liam is now in his second year of a Fitter/Machinist apprenticeship and Keely is pursuing training in Make-up Artistry.

– Janette, Mother of Liam and Keely

Gus was able to obtain an apprenticeship soon after his time working with Youth Express. It’s a great starting point and the cost is very reasonable. I tell all our friends to start the school leaver process with Youth Express.

– Karin, mother of Gus
