Mathew has received services through CSCL for a number of years, participating in various youth programs and then continuing to be involved with CSCL through BRIDGE Youth Employment Program. Mathew enjoys socializing with his peers, and while he was initially opposed to the concept of employment, he has discovered that work is somewhat like “volunteering” for pay. He works hard and loves to help others. He has completed many volunteer positions, including yard/outside lawn maintenance work and assisting on a Christmas Parade Float Decoration Crew to enter a fabulous float in the local Rotary Christmas Parade.
Earlier this month Mathew applied for a casual position as a Maintenance Assistant. After all his hard work it is no surprise his application was successful! No one was more excited than Mathew about this. Congratulations Mathew.
