Samantha was placed with GoochlandCares through Partnership for the Future. This college preparatory program provides crucial resources to promising Richmond-area high school students.
Internship stipends are paid by corporate partners. Students gain real-life work experience by working in corporate and non-profit settings. They have opportunities for one-on-one counseling and can earn funds that match what they have saved so far for college. The program also includes college search guidance and college application coaching. Rhonda Weaver, Clothes Closet Manager says, “We are so thankful for Samantha’s time with us. She is a quick learner with a consistent work ethic. She anticipated clients’ needs and made them feel welcome. That is a wonderful skill. We wish her well in her future endeavors.”
