"The Philadelphia Center gave me the resources to realize that I can be a contributing and successful adult. The program also gave me clarity on my future career, practical independent living skills, and the opportunity to experience society in a new light. I would not be nearly as confident to take on graduate school and life after Hanover graduation without my internship, peers, and advisors that helped me at TPC."

"Through TWC, I had the opportunity to listen to experts from all areas of the political field discuss their careers and today's issues. These experiences helped me set goals for my future and gave me the resources to pursue those goals after I graduate. How much this program changes you for the better will shock you."

"The Chicago Program enabled me to have the experience of working in the professional field of journalism. I also took fantastic classes that enlightened me to all of the social and political problems of Chicago, and our professors provided us with many hands-on experiences and speakers that really enabled us to be a part of the culture of Chicago. By the time I left, I felt like I was a native Chicagoan."
