I provide services for residents who live in affordable housing.
Every day is a great day at work. I assist residents with questions that they may have with paperwork, help them write resume's, or help them apply for jobs. I also run an after school program where I help students with their homework and then work on them with enrichment activities such as arts and crafts, science experiments, physical activity, and healthy cooking.
For my work you need to be a people person! You have to love to help people, be a problem solver, think on your feet, and be a self-starter.
Here's the first step for high school students
The most important first steps for someone looking to pursue my occupation is deciding whether or not you enjoy working with people! Sometimes we *think* we know what we would like to do only to discover "Oh no, that's definitely not for me!" So first step...go and volunteer! Volunteer anywhere you can!
"You can do anything you want. Just don't work with kids. You won't make any money."
