Thank you, SVCTE Students! 

A special thanks to the SVCTE students for preparing the delicious breakfast spread at our STEM internship appreciation breakfast! Everyone enjoyed the large selection of freshly baked pastries, fresh fruits, and cereal. Great work!  



Youth Spotlight
Liliana C.

Liliana C. joined TeenForce in April 2016, filling a short-term position. At the time, she could not provide her own transportation and was dealing with a lot personally, limiting potential job opportunities. Liliana approached us in person in late October to let us know that she was ready to work and now had her own transportation. After interviewing at Alliance Occupational Medicine for a position in billing support, she was offered the position the next day. Alliance was so impressed with her that they offered her a direct hire position with $2.00 more an hour than the advertised pay and the opportunity to move up within in the company if she does well. We are so proud of Liliana for taking the initiative to reach out in person to look for a new job and, of course, for landing the job at Alliance!
