A Promise Counselor reports she is amazed at the tremendous community support her Promise youth are receiving. Her youth, who are brothers aged 15 and 17, were both able to find work in two separate restaurant chains in their very small, rural community. Both brothers experience significant ADHD and were offered assistance from job coaches to help them succeed in their jobs. But because of the wonderful natural supports in their workplaces, both are succeeding without the assistance of job coaches. One of the brothers independently took on an extra shift at work even though he is still in high-school
The Promise Counselor reports that their school environment and teacher have also been extremely supportive. Their Promise Counselor has provided them with a job developer, family advocate involvement, a work incentives benefits consultation, and both youth are enrolled in Skills to Pay the Bills.
Wisconsin Promise, and their community, is working for this family….
