These are excerpts from testimonials gathered from Skillcity's Digital Creative Skills, Youthpreneur, Smart Life Skills and ICE program.
"This program helped me to build a great list of resources. It was very well planned and well worth the time investment. I definitely feel more prepared and ready to tackle my next steps in my business venture. Also having these contacts is a great feeling, as it makes me feel like I have a support network already in place and a whole bunch of resources I can use to my benefit!"
"Before this session, I really hadn't thought about my personal qualities, abilities and talents. Actually, I thought I had no talents at all, but now I see that I have some creative talents. I can now create video game stories with online tools, and even co-create with my friends, even if we can't meet up because of COVID-19. We can actually create video game characters and sell to big companies and make some money. This stuff is really cool."
"I was really getting bored and frustrated with the rules: 'don't go there', 'social distancing', 'you can't go out with your friends'... so many rules. Now, I have something to do with my friends online, we can create cool fun stuff online, and not have to worry about wearing masks or social distancing. That's what I really like about this Skillcity program.
"Now I can have a little breather; while my kids are developing new skills and making positive connections at the same time. Wow! what a relief! Thank you Skillcity. I don't want this to end (lol)."

"I joined this program because, I lost my regular job because of COVID - this will help me to learn social media content creation, which I can use to build a my portfolio for freelance gigs and make some income"
"The program was a great way for me to understand the basics of business without going into the heavy details. It provided me with lots of different skills and knowledge on different aspects of business and how to plan out a business before trying to initiate it. I also have a great idea on what a mentor is. And many community resources I could apply to, to help make my own business successful and provide me with guidance towards becoming a successful entrepreneur. It was fun!"
