Youth Healing Team Welcomes Newest Intern, Xavier!

Xavier walked through Hopeworks’ doors for the first time almost three years ago, with the goal of getting his High School Diploma and an internship.  He progressed through the training, but was pulled away from his goals by challenges in his physical health and personal life. He kept coming back because his goals didn’t change, and he liked that everyone at Hopeworks made him feel comfortable and accepted throughout his challenges. 

When he returned this year, Xavier worked hard to learn how to navigate through his frustration, rather than being overwhelmed by it. He also learned how to take care of himself mentally and physically so that he could give 100% during the day.  This summer, Xavier officially finished the training and was hired as an intern for the Youth Healing Team! 

When talking about his choice to join the Youth Healing Team Xavier says, “It’s a perfect fit for me. I, myself, experience anxiety, stress, and trauma, so to be able to help other people deal with that and not get as low as I got is a good thing for me. I want to help people deal with their emotions.” He is also looking forward to developing his presentation and professional communication skills. Xavier continues to study for his High School Diploma. 

We are so proud of you Xavier!
