OV Thanks Meow Wolf
Opportunity Village would like to send a huge congratulations to Abel, Raymon, and Jacob who were recently hired by MeowWolf; Omega Mart!
Abel was a previous participant in the Pathway to Work program. Abel left the program when he found a job at a small restaurant. Abel was well-liked and respected at his first job, but with time he decided he wanted a greater challenge and to try something new. Abel’s playful wit and nature made him a perfect fit for Meow Wolf; Omega Mart.
Raymon was a participant in Opportunity Village’s Job Discovery Program at the Culinary Academy. While there, Raymon was extended opportunities to grow his skills in a variety of areas. Raymon was even tasked with running the employee dining area on his own and did exceedingly well. When the pandemic led to virtual training, Raymon expressed he wanted to find a job and begin his professional career. In the process of looking for the right fit for Raymon, his job coach noticed that Raymon possesses a wonderful imagination and theatrical flair. Excitingly she knew of the perfect job at an immersive art experience aka Meow Wolf.
Jacob completed our Pathway to work training program at Get Fresh warehouse. He accepted a position doing a task he was most familiar with, janitorial and store care at Circle K convenience store. After mastering his tasks and being deemed an essential worker Jacob wanted more and he was ready to dance down the road to a more challenging career path. After months of hard work and dedication, Jacob accepted a position as a Creative Operator at Meow Wolf. Jacob is most excited about being part of offering an immersive experience to all that visit.
