Out of the Box was very professional. Not only was he kind, courteous and trustworthy, but made a great effort to keep the place clean, tidying up after each day he worked. My wife and I are very satisfied with his workmanship and would highly recommend him to anyone needing a taping and mudding. It was done meticulously, it was done with precision. Plain and simple, it was a Job well done.



Damian Alleyne, Residential Client

I was once an Out Of the Box member dating back  to summer 2013. The program was very helpful to me. I met some very beautiful people who I consider mentors to this very day and I constantly look up to them. They have thought me a variety of skills, such as how to respectfully appear  in a professional environment, How to prepare for an interview, how to send a positive message to everyone I come across with. They even went as far as teaching me how to cook. Most of all they have though me how to be a respectable gentleman. They have bought me a suite and offered me 500 dollars by the end of the program. They Thought me Also How to INVEST, mortgages and how the banking systems works, something I haven't learned at school. All that they have thought me as paid dividend as I became a father to a 1 year old baby girl And I use most of the skills I learned from out of box to my every day like and to make sure I am the best father I can possibly be  to my daughter. In  my humble opinion it was one of the most beneficial 3 week period of my life and  I would love to see other young black gentleman like me get the same opportunity I got and maybe their life would also change exponentially  to the better.
