Service: Work Experience Intern

“I was laid off from my job at Macy’s that I had for almost 10 years. The ‘I don’t know’ feeling of what to do and how to start all over again scared me. Then I heard about the NIYC and WIOA program … NIYC sent me to a worksite where I was able to build on more skills, learn about a different work environment, and get paid for doing it. Eventually that opened the door to a new career…I can proudly say I am about to have my two-year employment anniversary at Sandia Resort and Casino. NIYC gave me the pieces of the puzzle — it was just up to me to put it together. Thank you NIYC!”
