Emily P.

Emily P. is participating in the 2022 Experience WORKS Program.  She is a recent graduate of Laurel Highlands High School.

Emily is undecided about her future education and enrolled in Experience WORKS as a way to learn about working in social services and with senior clients. She was placed at the FCCAA Adult Recreation Center. She really enjoys working one on one with clients who come in for a warm meal and socialization. She has started calling bingo daily for individuals waiting for their meals.

Emily is saving her wages towards purchasing a car. She thinks the best part of the Experience WORKS program is the flexibility to earn a wage and enjoy the work you are doing.
