BLUE MOUNTAIN SUCCESS
Blue Mountain Ski Resort has truly gone above and beyond in their dedication to helping our job seekers. In August, we took a mentee to the resort for a mentorship, and they were able to learn a great deal about their desired job. The experience included an interview and a tour of the staff housing, providing valuable insights into the work environment. As a result of this incredible opportunity, the mentee successfully secured the job they were seeking. This success story has inspired us to arrange another mentorship at Blue Mountain for a new mentee in the coming month. Weare immensely grateful to Blue Mountain for their commitment to helping our job seekers and for their continued support in shaping promising careers.
 
ON THE GO DOG GROOMING
At Life Directions, we pride ourselves on fostering successful partnerships and empowering individuals in their career journeys. Recently, we had the opportunity to work closely with a job seeker who expressed a keen interest in dog grooming. Recognizing her passion, we wasted no time in connecting her with a local dog groomer to provide a valuable mentorship experience. During this mentorship, she had the opportunity to learn firsthand about the intricacies of the job, gaining practical skills and knowledge. The mentorship proved to be a resounding success, with the job seeker showing immense growth and enthusiasm throughout the process. This fruitful partnership between Life Directions and the local dog groomer exemplifies our commitment to creating meaningful connections and helping individuals pursue their passions.

KITE FESTIVITIES
In the month of August, Life Directions had the pleasure of attending the Hopeville kite festival. Despite the dull weather, it turned out to be the perfect backdrop for kite flying enthusiasts. Life Directions set up a vibrant vendor booth, where we had the opportunity to engage with festival attendees and spread awareness about MentorAbility and the valuable services we offer. While the skies may have been overcast, the atmosphere was filled with excitement and joy as colorful kites soared high above. It was a wonderful experience for everyone involved, and we are grateful to have been a part of such a unique and spirited event.
 
We are thrilled to announce that Randy Schoch will be hosting an exciting online lunch and learn video series for our esteemed business partners in the coming months. This series will feature interviews with key players in our partnerships, providing valuable insights and teachings related to supported employment. Whether it's best practices, success stories, or innovative strategies, this series aims to equip our partners with the knowledge and tools they need to thrive in the world of supported employment. Stay tuned for the release dates of these informative and engaging videos, as we look forward to sharing this valuable resource with our valued business partners.
