As a sophomore, Stephen learned about the Summer Youth Employment Program at his local high school. Taking the initiative to learn more, he applied to the program and began working at the Regional Center for Independent Living. For six weeks Stephen learned to work as an individual in an office environment as well as a team player on video projects. From this experience, he created a professional portfolio that will showcase his work and abilities to future employers. Stephen’s determination to learn and grow motivated his hard work throughout the program and continues to motivate his success as he focuses on planning for his career while finishing high school.
