This is Jared!
Jared joined AbilityFirst Supported Employment program in August of this year, just before the football season kicked off at the University of La Verne. Jared is the assistant football coach and shares, “I love working the games because I get to watch from the sidelines!” Jared’s responsibilities include set up and breakdown before and after the games and supporting the players however he can during the games.
Jared hoped to gain some support taking initiative while working on the field, and building social skills for when he works closely with the other coaches and players on the team. Jared’s job coach Martin has been encouraging him to take initiative, ask lots of questions, and keep busy! Jared say’s about Martin, “He helps me be responsible like getting to work on time and whenever I need it.”
