Work Experience Success Story



When Angel first started her journey at Janus, she came just one day a week. The new challenges and opportunities at Janus were a little overwhelming at first. Our staff worked diligently with Angel each and every week, encouraging her to try new things and teaching her that Janus is a safe place to learn. 

Since then, Angel has blossomed - increasing her attendance to the maximum 5 days a week! Her progress within the Work Experience program has given her the confidence to try new things and step out of her comfort zone. Most recently, Angel was an exuberant and active member of the Janus Choir (check out our video under the "Who We Are" tab!). Angel loves to come to work, and her sense of humor keeps friends and staff on their toes all day long. Through the Work Experience program, Angel has certainly grown in accepting and exceling in new challenges.
