“It prepares me for things [that] school doesn’t prepare me for.”
“I loved how there were many different types of activities but my favorite one was the swipe hat.“
“I learned more about my environment: what I would need to do in college, about my future, and how I can help out my community.“
“Hats & Ladders was open about gap years and environmental justice… things the new generations have become interested in.“
“I loved that it wasn’t vague, it wasn’t focusing on one main thing, it had a widespread of positions in jobs, majors in colleges, just many things, having many choices feels great and Hats & Ladders did that.“
