“This class was amazing. The teachers are great and I learned so much, not only about carpentry, but also about myself. I got to meet some of the most amazing people and truly believe that enrolling in this course was one of the best things I’ve ever done. I don’t know where my life would’ve gone without MCG and I’m happy that I don’t need to find out.”
