Let’s add to that HS Diploma!

We just spent a few hours with Jonathan. He is very nervous and has avoided following  through with a phone call to get a job interview. We practiced for an hour on best presentation. He struggled with remembering to state his name as his introduction. Then we came up with a few different scenarios and texted them to him so they could be looked at while making the phone call. He practiced using the phone and role-playing possible questions and responses. This gave him enough confidence to contact the human resources department and get himself the interview. We also drove on the freeway as he is a new driver and has been reluctant to continue his practice with higher speeds. He did great going 70 miles an hour for about a half hour, did not get white knuckles, and stayed in his lane beautifully during curves. The drivers practice that we did with him over the course of three months for about 4 to 6 hours a week really paid off here. Thank you so much to the volunteers that helped with these successes. We filled up his refrigerator with food and a volunteer brought over a nice meal that he can work on for a couple days. He is very grateful for the help and we call him our “Knight in Shining Armor.”   We can always use more volunteers for mentoring in many different areas including: money management/budgeting, resume building, interviewing, food preparation, job hunting, tutoring, and just having another human to talk to about life. Contact us if this sounds like something of interest to you.
