Teen Learns Valuable Life Lessons Working At Unique Movie Theater
We are back with another inspiring Prospect Profile. The Prospector Theater, located in Ridgefield CT, is a new state-of-the-art theater employing disabled adults to give them meaningful work and experience. In an effort to shine a light on special employees, they launched a new series of videos profiling these ‘Prospects.’
Lilia works among employees with disabilities and witnesses their incredible growth and progress. The hardworking teen talks about how rewarding it is to see the once-quiet employees come out of their shell and flourish! The theater gives all their employees a chance to learn different skill sets and prepare them for a brighter more successful future.
"I get a different perspective when I am here working and when I am here seeing a movie. I saw one of my coworkers doing one of the announcements and who i thought was originally really quiet, but came out and did their announcement and I was so happy to see them do it so well. I was clapping and a couple other people were clapping," Lilia happily says.
