“I love my job so much because I like to do what needs to be done. I unpack boxes and put them on carts.”  Kevin M.

“Wegmans is my heart. Wegmans is the best job in the world. I got great managers, great staff, great customers. I am the luckiest guy in the world.” Evan C.

“What I enjoyed about working at the AFYA foundation is that the people that work here are really nice and quite fun to be around with. By working at the warehouse, I was able to find and discover new things that I never knew about, such as: organizing medical supplies, finding out how each item plays a role in helping those that are injured and most of all being able to work with my neighbors. Not only that, I was also able to share some of my created artwork with the people around me as well developing the AFYA book which is a big-time project and is a manual with instructions for how to do the tasks that the volunteers help with (sorting, checking expiration dates, counting and quality control)” Traore F.

“Having a job personally benefits me with the experience and knowledge of working a task that can be difficult especially if it’s something new to me. I have my strengths when working a job but I also have weaknesses that I turn into strengths and use to my advantage when working. Having a job also gives me a sense of responsibility and makes me feel proud to have this job.”  Shane E.

Alberto chose to describe his experience at Walgreens with a quote:

“Sometimes we’re tested, not to show our weakness but to discover our strength.” Unknown

“Having a job means that I am able to be independent. The impact has been that I am able to buy things so I may continue my hobbies: cosplaying, drawing and gaming. I am also able to do things separate of my parents. As well as treat them. I have also learned how to deal with customers.”
