Recent Success Story

In Northwest Wisconsin: A youth really wanted to work at a summer camp. The Promise counselor connected this youth with a job developer. The job developer worked to connect the youth to do an assessment at a camp and was actually able to connect the youth to a Trial Work Experience (TWE) at the camp this summer which will turn into a permanent summer job for the youth during subsequent summers. The youth will be a Youth Summer Assistant and will be doing a variety of needed jobs for the summer camp, including assisting camp counselors, data entry, and camp maintenance. The youth is super excited he will be working at his dream job!
