Testimonial from a past grant recipient
“What a fabulous opportunity it has been having our WEOG (Work Experience Opportunities Grant) participant on the team! She brings a serenity to the work environment at the reception counter and beyond. She is a gem to work with. Her biggest success is how she is overcoming her shyness and approaching people and conversations with ease. Her precision and attention to detail have proven so successful that our HR Department is having her assist with developing our electronic-based filing system.”
