Shevone’s vocational journey began in HKSB’s Employment Empowerment Group, where she honed her interview skills, created customized disclosure statements, and learned about specific accommodations, all while showcasing essential soft skills in a group environment.

Subsequently, alongside her dedicated Employment & Training specialist, Ms. Shevone embarked on a path of career exploration to define her vocational aspirations. Together, they crafted a Work Experience Training (W.E.T.) plan.

Ms. Shevone then engaged in a successful W.E.T. at the United Senior Citizens of Sunset Park, Inc. in NYC. During this experience, Ms. Shevone was responsible for greeting members at the front desk, assisting them with checking-in to the Center, scanning members’ breakfast and lunch meal codes to track data for the Department of Aging on the number of daily meals served at the center, and accepting and securing members payments for breakfast and/or lunch.

Her dedication didn’t go unnoticed, as she left a lasting impression. The Director of the Center acknowledged her exceptional service to seniors, presenting her with a well-deserved certificate.

We are pleased to share that after her Work Experience Training, Shevone has secured a position at Amazon, a testament to her readiness for new challenges.

Congratulations to Ms. Shevone!
