From July 8, 2019 to August 2, 2019, LeChee Chapter hired 10 amazing Youth Employees. In the beginning of their employment it was awkward and new which is normal. As days went on, with each laughter and chats our group grew a bond. This bond was able to carry out many things (listed below). On a daily basis, our Youth Employees kept the Chapter House clean (cleaned the lobby and public bathrooms), answered phones (learn to communicate professionally over the phone), assisted with guests/customers with questions, and assisted with trash services.
Not only was there hard work, but also chances of learning as well; safe driving (Thank you, Ms. Evelyn Walker, from ‘The Department of Highway Safety’), Teen Talk (Thank you Ms. Sydney Tolchinsky, ‘Teen Pregnancy Prevention from Coconino County Health and Human Services’), and Teen Workshop (Thank you Mr. Tyler Manson, from ‘Dine Youth’).
So the next time you come to the Chapter House, look around and marvel at their work. Also if you see these amazing kids, thank them for making a beautiful change to your Chapter House.
2019 Summer Youth Employees! With the amazing work you have accomplished, we look forward to see more great things from you all in the future!
