Congratulations to our recent graduate of the Work Readiness Program. Andrew has successfully completed modules needed to assist him in setting personal and employment related goals. These modules focused on a strong work ethic, safety at work, good habits/conduct in the workplace, and communication/leadership skills. Andrew is a successful entry-level employee for a major hotel chain. He will have an opportunity to be a guest speaker and mentor for clients still attending class.
In celebration of Veterans Day an enclave of clients visited the Veterans Memorial in Paramus and River Edge. Some of our clients had
family members that served in the armed forces. We researched the beginning of Veterans Day. It began as Armistice Day when an agreement was reached between the Allies and the Central Powers was signed, ending World War I at 11'oclock, on November 11, 1918. At the time many people thought there would never be another war. The United States changed the name to Veterans Day to honor those who served in the armed forces during all of its wars.
We had the pleasure of meeting several veterans at the memorials, and heard their stories.
The clients were fortunate to be able to thank them personally for their service.
