The Story:

Kenneth reached out to the Cherokee Nation Employment Program for help to find a job. There his Counselor, Mary Ross, assisted him to obtain a day work position in the area of Culinary Arts; however, due to extreme shyness he was removed from this position.

The Cherokee Nation VR Program provided Kenneth with Counseling and Guidance, and a one on one Life Skills Training with emphasis on social and communication skills. He also received assistance with the purchase of clothing and shoes.

After the training Kenneth was hired at the Warehouse Market as a Dairy Stocker and has developed good work ethics including responsibility of attendance, completing assigned tasks and good communication with his coworkers; he now exhibits improved self-esteem.
