SEE student gains employment through volunteering!
After completing 800 hours in the SEE Program, Xuyen (at the front on the left) wanted to do voluntary work in the nearby Salvos Store. While working there for approximately six weeks, she developed in confidence and gained valuable experience working alongside staff as well as assisting customers. Always a keen student, Xuyen picked up new words and she was assisted in the learning process by Margaret and Barbara (front right) and Jo, the manager (next to Xuyen). More recently, her Job Active provider, ARA Jobs at Kilkenny has guided her to part-time employment at the Saigon Vietnamese take-away just south of the city of Adelaide. She is keen to return to MTC Australia soon for another 800 hours in the classroom, hoping to further develop her English skills in preparation for a new experience in the work force. Great work Xuyen!
