Sebastian DeModica, a client and participant in the Employee Development track of our Own Your Life program, was recently named the Reverend Alma Dungee Volunteer for the Year by Keep Charleston Beautiful. We are so proud of Sebastian’s hard work to help keep the streets of Charleston clean of debris. In addition to the many volunteer hours he logs, Sebastian puts in numerous hours of hard work in our Employee Development program learning the adaptive skills he needs to become employed since losing his vision. He takes classes with our skilled instructors in subjects such as computer, to learn to operate computers, read and write emails, perform internet research, craft Word documents and so on. Once he graduates from Own Your Life, Sebastian will be able to perform the same tasks as sighted colleagues, and become competitive in today’s job market. Sebastian is a wonderful role model for all of our clients. We could not be more proud of him and we know his future is very bright!
