GoodTemps and NYC Disability Mentoring Day

Disability Mentoring Day Video

Back in October, GoodTemps participated in the NYC Disability Mentoring Day, sponsored by the NYC Mayor's office for People with Disabilities.

For the day, seven disabled jobseekers of all ages and walks of life came to our office and shadowed our staff as they went about their day to day activities.

The purpose of Disability Mentoring Day is to give disadvantaged jobseekers a first hand look at the inner workings of a company, in order to better prepare them for working life. The day was a great experience for all - mentors and mentees alike - and one mentee was placed into a job with one of our clients the following day.

Taj, a videographer from Goodwill NY & NJ was also on hand to capture the events.
