David is a high school student in Port St. Lucie and has started in our youth program to explore different careers with hopes of finding his passion. His first paid work based learning experience (WBLE) is at LongHorn Steakhouse where he works as a food prepper.He has learned his way around the kitchen and his employU job coach, Michelle, is with him during shifts to guide and assist him when the restaurant is busy. David works at an above-average speed and all his prepped items are consistently accurate. With Michelle's help, David has also learned how to communicate with others around him and how to advocate for himself when needed. They have formed a strong bond of trust and honesty.As David continues earning money while exploring different careers with us, we hope he discovers the right fit for his future. In the meantime you can find him enjoying his favorite food (french fries) after a shift at Longhorn😀 #employingabilities ... See MoreSee Less
