What an opportunity

Hats off to the grads of the Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow’s Young Adult Internship Program. More than 50 trainees from Williamsburg, Crown Heights, Bushwick, and Bedford-Stuyvesant completed the rigorous 14-week program, celebrating last month at the Bedford Central Presbyterian Church.

The program provides job readiness training and stresses the importance of professional dress, punctuality and self-confidence in youth, claimed Annie Norbeck, the chief program officer who presented the awards.

“Success doesn’t come easily for anyone and the internship program teaches trainees that a little extra effort goes a long way,” she said.

Recent graduate Quinnelle Randolph, now employed at FSO Outsourcing Solutions, shared his experience as a student.

“Every day I learned new things about myself and what I wanted to do with my life,” he said. “The most important lesson I learned from my teacher Ms. Neverson was don’t let your off day be anyone else’s, meaning we are each responsible for our own success every single day.”

Standing O pal Annie closed the ceremonies with an address.

“You should be very proud, you’ve all finished this program, an important first step,” she said. “Take everything you learned here and apply it to the next thing you do.”

Standing O sends best wishes and lots of success to all the proud grads.
