Career Development and Job Placement Spotlight

Jakeena B. came to The Arc Mid-South in June 2014 looking for help with intellectual and learning disabilities. She had been attending Southwest Tennessee Community College, but was having trouble learning so she enrolled in our LETS program and received one-on-one assistance with math and reading.  Jakeena proved to be an exceptional student – she was always willing to take on different challenges and help her classmates.

We directed Jakeena to numerous job fairs, where she used her new interviewing skills  and was  hired by FedEx.  Jakeena now works 20 hours a week as a Document Scanner and is learning how to be more independent by budgeting her money -- another skill we taught her.  With our assistance, Jakeena achieved her goal.
