“The WorkAbility Program was reintroduced to my Pizza Hut in the fall of 2004, shortly after I became the manager. The coaches have trained the students at our restaurant exceptionally well. In fact, many have been hired and have worked a year or longer after their program hours were done. I find this partnership rewarding in that I receive quality employees while helping the young people develop life skills of teamwork and communication. I’m proud to have the WorkAbility program as a business partner.”
