"I recently hired 2 teens to help me with some yard work, Nicholas and Austin.  I was very happy with the work they did. They both arrived at the agreed upon time, ready to work.  They were professional and courteous.  They worked hard and finished the job in the time I had esimated it would take.  I would definitely hire either one of them or both of them again and I will recommend the hire-a-teen program to other people in the community.  The process of hiring them was convenient and easy to use.  It is a great service and I am a very satisfied customer."   - Joanne
