Jean Noriega

I like working at GMPD because it’s easy to communicate and get along with co-workers as well as be in an athletic atmosphere which I enjoy. GMPD has shaped me into a more outgoing person as I am willing to try new things I never did before.


Rushane Wright

I like working at Feldman because our staff members are amazing and I learn a lot from them everyday. I also like working at Feldman because it’s a fun job and it never gets boring.



Dhyanil Desai

Feldman is where I grew up, made friends, and got advice from the people that worked there. Working there now I get the chance to do the same thing for kids who are trying to find their place. Working at Feldman has made me into a more responsible, mature, and understanding man.



Milan Grover

I like to work at GMPD because it allows me to apply leadership skills on a day to day basis. I also enjoy educating the youth on all of the knowledge I have learned from working here.


Calvin Yousif

I like to work at Golf Maine Park because it's never easy being the new kid, in a new neighborhood. This place helped me make new friends which became my brothers who helped raise me to become the man that I am. I want to give back to everyone else who may have a similar experience and GMPD allows me to do just that. It's just a thing from the heart you do.
