“I currently work at Chuck E. Cheese and recently got hired at Food 4 Less; therefore, I currently am a high school senior and have two part-time jobs. I have been part of the IVROP WorkAbility program since I was a sophomore at Southwest High School. When I started the program, I would participate and ask questions about topics presented to us. Some of the topics WorkAbility would present to us would be about job applications, resumes, references, and job interviews and positive attitude. These topics have given me the ability to obtain a job on my own. For example, when we had the class presentations, I learned that I should memorize my social security number.”
