“Rising Sun will meet you more than halfway, but you have to do your part. My cohort was very supportive and really kept me going. My classmates told me I could do it and I did.”
“I would encourage GETS for anyone interested in the sustainability of themselves, their family, resources, and the planet.”
“If I did not attend the GETS program, I would not have seen how bright my future could be, and that’s all thanks to the amazing training and skills I’ve learned from Rising Sun.”
