Kickstart has been some of the best days I’ve had in the last couple of months. Giving the presentation proved to be a confidence boosting exercise for me. The morning was motivational, inspiring and positive. I was blown away by the generosity and kindness of everyone involved – volunteers, staff, participants. It really meant a lot. Thank you. 

The Kickstart experience has been exceptional and rewarding. I don’t just mean rewarding in the achievement of a job, but rewarding in that all of you as a team support, encourage, motivate, push and listen. I am both excited and scared of my new journey, but what I have learned I will always have with me. Most importantly I get to walk away with new contacts and friends and I also know who to contact if I ever need help.
