Shawn moved to Yankton in January to pursue new life opportunities. One of his biggest goals was to find a job he enjoys. Shawn did not know what type of work he wanted to pursue. He began working with Employment Specialist, Margaret to explore what Yankton had to offer. They discussed his interests and past experiences working. Margaret helped Shawn set up work assessments with several employers in town. Shawn tried different jobs for a short period of time so that he could get a better idea of what he liked and disliked. One of the assessments Shawn tried was at The Center clearing tables and washing dishes. Shawn enjoyed the work and atmosphere of this assessment location. After his assessment, The Center contacted the ABS Supported Employment department to let them know that they were looking to hire part time kitchen help and would like to encourage people receiving supports from ABS to apply if interested. Shawn applied for the position and was hired. He is enjoying meeting new people and takes great pride in knowing he is earning his own money.
