The transformative power of support
Dylan, initially hesitated to accept the support of our Employment Advisor, Tammi Jason. Skeptical and unsure, he believed that advisors were only there because it was their job. However, Tammi’s unwavering commitment and belief in Dylan’s potential which was reinforced by his supportive family has given laid the foundation for their journey together.
Over the course of a year, Tammi worked closely with Dylan, focusing on building his skills and addressing his communication challenges. They implemented a structured calendar of daily activities, as Dylan checked off each completed task it gave him a true sense of accomplishment. Dylan’s family played an essential role in supporting Tammi’s plan, reinforcing the progress and goals set for him.
Another key aspect of Dylan’s growth was his ability to accept constructive feedback and incorporate it into his development. Together with Tammi, he addressed the areas of improvement, showcasing his determination and adaptability. Dylan’s willingness to learn and grow made him an ideal fit for Containers for Change, where his dedication and exceptional work ethic has been recognised.
