I've been working at Second Chance for about two years now and my overall experience has been very unique and life changing. It feels good to be apart of an organization that is not only creating jobs for poeple in the community, but is also making the earth a better place to live by keeping garbage off the street and out of the landfills. Before I found Second Chance, I had been in a bit of a bind because I had dropped out of college and could not find a job to save my life. Second Chance gave me that second life by taking a chance and hiring a young teenager with no life of work experiences. Second Chance, along with my dedication and hardwork, trained and molded me into the man I am today. The part of my experience that is going to stick with me most is our life skills training class. This class had been the last part of our six week training. In this class, we had learned how to solve problems on and of the job, how to handle different situations, time and money management and other things we needed for life. The part of the class that had stuck out to me most, was the discussions. We got the chance to discuss personal and job related situations that we had been faced with. Everyone would add input on how to approach and handle each obstacle. This was an excellent way to relieve stress, as well as to keep from being stressed. I have really enjoyed my time at Second Chance and I am pretty sure I am not alone. Second Chance to me does not only give a second chance to material, but also to people and dreams.
