A PROGRAM THAT NOT ONLY STRIVES TO ACHIEVE A JOB FOR THEIR CLIENTS BUT TO HAVE THEIR DREAMS COME TRUE AS WELL
This beautiful young lady is Shyanne. Shyanne started with Compass Career Solutions several years ago, through the DVR, Pre-Ets Program. After many hours, personal development, and hard work, Shyanne was moved into our Supported Employment program.
Shyanne was so thankful to be offered a job in her small town in under a week! When asked about how she felt when she heard that she had been hired, Shyanne said, "I love the opportunity to work for Shell!" Shyanne was diligent to show up to work on time and worked hard, consistently, becoming a valued member of the staff at Shell. When asked, Tammy Dresen, General Manager said, “I love having her on my staff! She is a very dedicated and hard worker that does an awesome job!!!”
Along with Compass Supported Employment Services, Shyanne was able to take part in our Community Guide Services, which allowed her to attend a Better Bones and Balance Class at Centralia Community College for five quarters. This has helped Shyanne to build her bone density and muscle memory that would help her to avoid falling.
Supported Employment is a group effort, and parents have a part to play in the success of a job placement. Angie McKenzie, Shyanne’s mother says, “As a parent, you want your child to transition into the world that is a safe environment. Supported services allow each individual to focus on and work towards reachable dreams. This program allows you as a parent to feel confident that your child is making life decisions to the best of their abilities. By working together with Supported Employment, you are not alone. Thank you, Compass!
