Woman Coaches Disabled Employees At Rewarding New 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.’ This week we meet the incredible coach that helps these Prospect's learn, grow and shine.
Elizabeth Gallo spends her time as a coach at the theater. She teaches and mentors the employees to thrive at their jobs. Specifically, she works in the Gourmet Popcorn Program. The employees learn how to make and create popcorn recipes that are for sale at the cafe. "I see growth in a Prospect every day." She finds such reward in seeing her employees master their task.
"The Prospector has had a really great impact on me. I've learned about myself as a teacher and a couch and the difference I can make in a Prospect's life."
Keep a look out for Prospect Profiles to learn more about these awesome Prospects!
