Tom's story: Finding his place in the world

Tom first became involved in the School Leaver Employment Support program through his school and has loved the experience ever since.

“Our son has special needs and special is what stands out to me. I have found with SLES; with the right people around them, they find out what their place in the world is and what they want in life. They are truly invested in the students, we think it’s Gold!” Tom's father shares his experience with the School Leaver Employment Support program.
