Unsure about the future and where he might fit in, a referral to Goodwill Amity’s Transitional Employment and Mentoring program has given Jay the skills, tools and support to see a path forward. This 8-week program provided Jay with a safe setting to learn new hands-on skills such as retail etiquette, talking to difficult customers, and food preparation. He developed his own resume, learned how to search for jobs and participated nervously in mock interviews.
Supported by his Goodwill Amity coach, Jay built the confidence needed to complete a real interview and secure employment in a local comic book store.
