Here at Work Ability our mission is too help individuals with disabilities to become more independent and learn basic skills. Also to learn how to get a job,How to keep one and what to expect when working at a job. Plus how they should behave or act when working at one. That way they can succeed in one later on in their future. We teach them many things like how to dress appropriately for work or an interview. How to use good hygiene before going to work. How to act in the work force and how to handle difficult situations. To not give up, work hard, and follow through with what they're doing. To teach them what a resume is and teach them new skills that they can learn to add to that resume and so on. The purpose is to help individuals with disabilities find a job and keep it by teaching them how to succeed in the work force.
My favorite internship was JCC. I liked Allison and sorting the Yarn. I also liked helping Sandy put clothes away at Second Fiddle.
This week I went to my internship. my favorite internship this week was second fiddle . we got to work independently because She was in a broad meeting . i worked very hard while i was there . I have been struggling to help my mates I am still trying to learned how to do that without being so bossy . I really like being a peer mentor.
As a peer mentor its sometimes hard to be responsible .
Sorting cans at the cat shelter was hard. I cut my finger but I still finished my work . I have learned to be helpful to the other students when they need it. i like to be helpful. I also learned to use appropriate voice in the class . My goals are get a job in day care. I need to learn job skills.
I was a peer mentor when Somebody needed help. for example if they cant reach the window I would help them . I also helped them by getting the cleaning step I also got to work Closely with the boss at the Tucson coffee roasters

Hello my name is Luquentas and I am a peer mentor for the yellow and red class. My job is to help
students by helping them write things, take take them for a walk if they need one,
I keep an eye on the garbage, I help the teachers by taking charge of the sign out sheets,
and I participate during class talks. Week 1 and 2 was good.
I got to know every student, it was not hard for me because I have a positive attitude.I also have to talk to the teacher to know what I should be doing.
I really liked being at Work Ability this summer. It's good for my work experience. I also will be miss being
around with my friends at WorkAbility and I will wish them the best of luck. I am thinking
about coming to work when I can be able to return with a good positive mental attitude. I learned that it is not good to have excuses that are not real. I will keep on bring the doctors note when I go to the doctor. Thank You WorkAbility.
