Washington DC Bridges Story

Terrell Gray lives in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington DC and graduated from the Maya Angelou Public Charter School. He has difficulty with reading and written language.

Terrell is a determined young man but lacked a goal, and he needed additional readiness skills for looking for a job. Bridges From School To Work provided the necessary structure and guidance for Terrell to set a goal and work toward it.

Terrell chose to apply to Ben & Jerry’s at the Inner Harbor. He walked in confident and got the job immediately. He started as a scooper and is now a cashier. He went from needing a lot of direction to being able to work alone, and he’s now a “go to” employee.
