A sense of responsibility.
As a member of the summer training program, Ronald fine tuned technical and social skills while working at locations such as Hawaii Foodbank. With this new experience under his belt, he felt prepared to enter the working world, landing a position as a food service worker at Lanakila Kitchen.
Ronald's family says they've seen a huge change in his confidence since his training, especially in initiating and maintaining conversations. He has been inspired to work toward getting a larger role in a kitchen in the coming years.
"I look forward to seeing people at work. I like to pass out plates! I scoop up sauce for the spaghetti, I wash the dishes, I wash the bags, and mop the floor!"
