Treasa’s bright smile and positive energy when you meet her is contagious. Her willingness to be a shining light for her fellow peers is evident through her daily work. She is excited about her next chapter with Goodwill in the Work Readiness Assessment program. Treasa will have the opportunity to dig deeper into possible jobs in the community she could see as a career. Recently, she talked about her experience in the Pre-Vocational Training Program and the significant progress she has made.
“In the past, I worked at several places. I struggled to keep a job. When I came to Goodwill, I would bring my problems to work. I have now learned how to cope when situations happen. I am proud of my job coaches. Through everything, they have supported and stood by me. Sometimes, I cannot bend over because of my back, and they are accommodating. I have learned a lot of things at Goodwill. I have learned the value of hard work. I am focused on getting the job done when I am here. I had trouble with communication at first, but my job coaches have helped me communicate better. My goal is to work as a bagger at Fareway, helping pack up customers’ groceries and bringing their groceries out to their car.”
