The Fresh Start Program in Baltimore inspired Elena and I to found Skill Scout.
This year, we made a donation on behalf of our team and clients. Thank you for being a part of our story in 2019.
Elena: I remember it was April of 2011. My life was markedly changed. Walking into that workshop.
Abby: We are a media company that helps bring to life stories of the workplace on video. The very first project
that I worked with Elena we were able to go to an organization in Baltimore. We visited a program called Fresh Start that was helping young people who had just come out of incarceration to get that next fresh start into their career.
Elena: Marianne Williamson has a quote, that you cannot be what you cannot see. Being at Fresh Start, we were
exposed to this in action.
Abby: One thing that we learned through our work at Fresh Start, was to keep it real and keep it simple. That's something that we still aspire to do in our work today. To celebrate the end of the year, and what's been a pretty fantastic decade, Skill Scout is making a financial donation to Fresh Start.
Elena: We're doing this in honor of our team, of our clients, and in honor of the mission that we formed at Fresh Start, that continues to drive us today.
Abby: So thank you for making this possible. Thank you to our team, thank you to our clients, thank you to our friends and family that have helped support us over the year.
Elena and Abby bring you innovative stories from the workplace.
