Turning an internship into a job
Brandon began his employment journey in the Employment Training Program, ETP, in March of 2020. ETP is a program funded through New York State.
Brandon worked with his job coach to discover various career fields and responsibilities, work on development of skills and to find and secure a paid internship. Brandon decided to do his internship at Community Services for Every1 at the Jefferson Career Exploration Center as a Custodian and began on March 17, 2020.
After completing his ETP internship, Brandon gained employment though our agency as the Custodian for our Jefferson Career Exploration Center in September 2020 and is doing wonderfully! He continues to work with his job coach and is truly a wonderful addition to the team. Brandon is always punctual, completes his daily tasks on time, monitors any needs and barriers that arise, communicates with other staff, and helps to ensure the building is clean and safe for everyone.
We are so proud of Brandon and excited to have him on our team!
