Summer Work Experience Program

I developed a partnership with several state of New Mexico Government agencies to create a work experience summer program for disabled youth. It was very successful. The youth were paid by the state for their work experience, and were considered volunteers by the federal government during the summer. Several of them were so good at their work that several agencies wanted them converted into the Federal Pathways student employment program, which is a year round employment program for students. Several of the students were converted into career appointments.
