Kevin: Employee of the Month

Kevin is a client of Broadscope’s Employment Services program. Kevin is a 22-year old high school graduate with a disability, who had little experience with personal and professional interactions. His only experience included volunteering with his mother at a local thrift shop.

Kevin desired more. He wanted a job, and he wanted to be more independent. Kevin reached out to Broadscope’s Employment Services for guidance and assistance to realize that dream. Broadscope’s employment counselor worked with Kevin to determine the type of employment he wanted, and coached him through a couple work experiences, including a local Walgreen’s. The employment counselor continued to coach Kevin’s behavior with customers at Walgreen’s, which ultimately earned him a part-time job.

Eventually, Kevin achieved “Employee of the Month” at his position at Walgreen’s, Oak Creek, for his positive performance and growth. The store manager and staff are very supportive of Kevin, and together with Broadscope Disability Services, have played a huge roll in his success. Now, Kevin, who initially fled from customers, has gained the confidence to not only greet customers but to help them find what they are looking for.
