We recently took our final Youth Employment Strategies (YES) Program trip for the Dress for Success program. The students of the Y.E.S! program learned about jobs at JCPenney, received access to their training headquarters and had the opportunity to meet the Manager. Then the fun began! The students went shopping for business appropriate clothing for their upcoming interviews. We recently took our final Youth Employment Strategies (YES) Program trip for the Dress for Success program.

As a follow-up to the JC Penny trip, our 11th and 12th graders took part in practice interviews with the staff from Helen Keller Services and Visions. This has been a very productive and educational experience thank you everyone that made this possible. In addition to mastering job development techniques, students receive intensive PC based technology instruction and learn how to maximize the use of assistive software such as JAWS and ZoomText. These softwares boost student competitiveness in a demanding job market. Photographer: Christopher Busone, Mary Catechis, Ryan Melendez and Dawn Raneri
