More Young People Changing Their Lives with Jobs!

August might be a sleepy summer month elsewhere, but, for Hopeworks, our young people were busy earning high wage jobs to transform their lives!

In the last month, Iridian Moratin finished Hopeworks Medical Assistant training program and translated that into a full time job at Cooper Hospital.  Leveraging the unique partnership between Rutgers Rowan Board of Governors, Hopeworks, and Camden County College, Iridian is now on her way to a rewarding career in the medical field.  

Iridian is not the only Hopeworks young person on the move.  Marcel Nighe-Tezeh has joined the Philadelphia Parking Authority, helping them deploy and maintain PC’s and other systems across their network.  Coming from Cameroon at the age of 17, Marcel recently shared, “many of the people that I know are still working in warehouses; I get to have a career in tech!”
Finally, Being Design has hired two more Hopeworks youth to join their team!  Carlos Pagan and Kayla Evans joined the Being Design team, helping the company help “socially conscious organizations increase their impact in a digitally integrated world.”  You can see Kayla’s reaction to getting hired here and see what Carlos had to say here
