From volunteer to employee
Why is work experience important to Hayden?
At Scope, its always about people with a disability and how we can support them bring possibilities to life.
This International Day of People with a Disability, we are delighted to bring to you Hayden’s story. Hayden, a customer of Scope Lifestyle Options, Warragul, has always wanted to be independent and work.
Six years ago, he got the opportunity to volunteer at a local cafe – Frankie’s, and didn’t stop to think twice before grabbing it.
He started at front of house greeting customers and doing small jobs. He soon worked his way towards the being a kitchen hand, and is now involved in food preparation and cooking, and takes on new tasks and challenges with ease.
From a volunteer to an employee
Hayden’s work at Frankie’s Café has prepared him with life skills that he can us for paid employment opportunities. There is no stopping him now!
Hayden enjoys being part of team at Frankie’s cafe and working hard behind the kitchen. His self-confidence has increased, and he continues to set new goals for himself.
As a result of all his hard work and talent, Hayden has now secured a paid employment opportunity at Frankie’s Cafe.
Congratulations Hayden! Way to go!
