Earlier this year we met Kyle, his journey is one of perseverance and determination despite the obstacles presented to him. Health and other challenges affected his perception of self-worth, resulting in 6 years of unemployment and pessimistic ideologies. Seeing barriers and looking downward was all he thought possible.
After talking with his Job Active provider, Kyle decided that at twenty-four he owed it to himself to give it another go – and excelled with flying colours through The Bounce Program with ACE.
Innovative lessons, discussions and activities in class assisted Kyle to shift his mind-set. He was super enthusiastic about every session and was actively engaged. He learnt coping strategies to keep his mind focused, regained self-confidence and positivity about life. His body language changed: he was now looking up, looking forward.
Kyle bravely handed out resumes [bravo!] and received several invitations for interview. The company where he handed his very first resume interviewed him on the spot and the momentum did not stop building – he was HIRED in a full-time role where his passion for animals and providing quality care shone through.
Kyle is the first to tell you that he can now see a brighter future. He has learnt to value himself and others. He is now open to opportunity, reaching further and aiming higher. Thank you Kyle for being brilliant, it has been a joy and honour to be part of your journey.
