“OBT has taught so much more than what I learned in the classroom: it opened up my eyes that I am a human being, I am worthy of respect, and that I have a voice which can be heard. From my first YAIP program, to the Web Encoding & Design Program, to becoming an advocate, and ultimately securing a job, OBT has never failed to impress me how well we treat our clients.”
