Amanda W.

Title/Department: Employment Coach/Employment Services
# of Years with The Arc NCR: 1 year
Nominated by: Justine C. and Leslie K.

Here are the highlights from Amanda’s nomination.

Demonstrating The Arc NCR’s Mission

Amanda promotes the mission of The Arc NCR every day.  She is consistent in finding ways to encourage community participation for those she supports.  When Amanda was a Personal Support Coach, she supported an individual with anxiety, but this person wanted to make new friends and try new activities.  Amanda was determined to have this individual achieve her goal for the year.  She started by going on drives with the individual to get them out of their home and see the community.  Two weeks later, Amanda was able to bring the supported person to Target and wander the aisles with her.  By the end of the month, the individual was excited to head out into the community and had even signed up to take a sign language class through Parks & Recreation.

Displaying Leadership

In addition, Amanda supports a person on her caseload that has been waiting to find a job.  Amanda took the initiative to research current job openings and assisted in applying for positions on the individual’s behalf.  The supported person was called in for an interview on site and Amanda rearranged her schedule to take this person to and from her interview, as well as support her during it.
