Overcoming Challenges with Focus- Leland’s Story

Leland came to New Door very clear about his career and education goals. He was pursuing a certificate in computer programming at City College and working at McDonald’s at the time– and when a friend told him about New Door, Leland saw an opportunity to gain greater work experience and job skills. Now, one year after starting New Door’s employment program, Leland proudly dons his name tag from Macy’s Department Store, where he is a full-time employee while also continuing college.
