  •  Compiled a report that assesses the impact of CEO programming on the lives of its clients in Buffalo including statistics, stories of participants, and records of CEO clients’ accomplishments in employment and life transitions.
  • Helped teach orientation classes to new CEO clients about the CEO model as well as a two weekly classes focused specifically on interviewing skills. One was targeted at older CEO participants while one focused on the needs of youth, ages 18-24.
  • Coached individual CEO clients by conducting mock-interviews and assisted with resume preparation

“From a young age I have always wanted to be an attorney. My work at CEO confirmed my desire to attend law school and fight for young, minority, low-income citizens who too often are the make-up of disenfranchised groups. My placement at CEO exceeded my expectations. Not only did I get to put together a report, I also got the chance to job develop directly with participants.” 

“Amber is a rock star. She is created a report that we have wanted to complete for a while, however with a small staff it’s hard to go to far above and beyond our responsibilities. This report will inject a human element to our work and that is important to our story.”

Western New York Regional Director for CEO
