Workforce Central Florida was able to help me out when no other organization could. Still to this day I can not thank them enough. They provided me with a temporary job that allowed me to earn money over my summer break from school. They didn't just assign me a job, but instead gave me a list to choose from. I had such a great time where I worked and learned so much. I was able to put the internship with them on my resume and was happy to see how impressed employers were by it. Workforce Central Florida put me back on my feet.I hope that others will get the chance to experience what I did! I highly recommend WCF and hope to see them continuing with all that they do!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

We leave things how they are.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

all the opportunities I was provided with. I gained valuable skills and knowledge.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazing people. Each with thier own unique personality. I felt comfortable around each and everyone. Very easy to talk to, as well as great listners.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

benefit greatly from that kind of money. Possibly expand to help out more individuals.

Ways to make it better...

I wouldn't change anything.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting enough people to sponser and realize it's importance.

One thing I'd also say is that...

given the opportunity to do it again I would.

Lake Sumter EMS had student workers for 6 weeks during the months of July 2009 and August 2009. We had 4 students. One of the students was extended to stay for an additional 4 weeks. The students were instrumental as we were moving our Support offices from one location to another. Workforce kept in close contact regarding the students progress and work habits. The students were required to keep a Daily Log reviewing their experiences. Workforce collected these weekly and reviewed. One student had an issue regariding attitude and I relayed this to Workforce. Workforce came in immediately and corrected the problem.
