I have found part-time work restocking shelves at New World. I have become a member of the Project SEARCH Steering Committee as an Alumni so I can share what it is like being an intern.
I am working full-time at Paul Harris Racing as a Stable Hand. I have always had an interest in horses so this suits me well. I have bought my first car which I use to get to work.
I have started a part-time role with the Hurunui District Council in the Mayoral Taskforce. I have done a variety of work to find what suits me best. They have given me my own PPE clothing for my work.
Lee has a small business called 'Barry's Biks' making and selling healthy dog treats in Christchurch. He volunteers with St John Meals on Wheels, the Shirley Vege Co-op helping fill bags and getting barista training, and the Mairehau Community Library where he shelves books, helps out and attends committee meetings. Lee is looking forward to finding paid employment, being an employee and part of a team.
I’m doing work experience two days per week at Diana Isaac Retirement Village. The people are friendly. I have a uniform and a name badge.
