"What stands out the most to me was the feeling that the instructors really cared about the students."

BAY EMT Partners:
"These programs are necessary especially in a place like this – you have people going through poverty, so much violence on the streets... get your mind off all the negativity. They teach you something you can use to make your community better and the world better."
