Reflecting a commitment to a robust and competitive American labor force, the 2018 National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) theme is “America’s Workforce: Empowering All.” Observed each October, NDEAM celebrates the contributions of workers with disabilities and educates about the value of a workforce inclusive of their skills and talents. For specific ideas on supporting NDEAM, visit the website www.dol.gov/ndeam. Suggestions range from simple, such as putting up a poster, to comprehensive, such as implementing a disability education program. However you choose to take part, you’ll be playing an important role in fostering a more inclusive workforce, one where every person is recognized for his or her abilities—every day of every month.

(SYEP is a government-funded program operated by RochesterWorks! with the intent of providing meaningful summer work opportunities to youth ages 14-20 within Monroe County.

Mariangelis: Sure! GRSLA: How long have you been with GRSLA / summerLEAP? Mariangelis: I’ve been here three weeks now, and I’ve worked with Luis (Director) and Tiffany (Admin Support Specialist) to learn about the administrative side of how the organization operates. GRSLA: What is the best part of your internship? Mariangelis: Getting to know all the team members, experiencing community events such as National Summer Learning Day at the Central Library and the proclamations from the Rochester City School District, City of Rochester’s Mayor, Monroe County, and Senators Robach and Funke. I like visiting GRSLA’s summerLEAP program sites too. GRSLA: What was your favorite childhood toy or book? Mariangelis: Reading was my favorite activity and my favorite book was Matilda by Roald Dahl. GRSLA: What song makes you happy? Mariangelis: I enjoy church songs, in both English and Spanish. GRSLA: What do you want to be when you ‘grow up’? 🙂 Mariangelis: I want to be a doctor. The University of Rochester has offered me a scholarship and I hope to begin studies after my High School graduation. GRSLA: Who inspires you? Mariangelis: First God, because he gives me strength and guides me on my path. And my Mother, because she helps me believe in myself, and she’s positive – telling me that I can do anything. GRSLA: Thanks for our chat, Mariangelis. We are very glad you are part of the GRSLA / summerLEAP Team this summer!
