Fellowship Place Participates in the Greater Dwight Development Corporation’s Annual Spring Clean-Up.

On Saturday, May 11 a small group of volunteers from Fellowship Place participated in the Greater Dwight Development Corporation’s annual spring clean-up. Our clients worked side by side with our neighbors to pick up trash, sweep sidewalks, and help with plantings on Elm Street and University Place. Fellowship Place is grateful to the greater Dwight community for its support, and Saturday’s event was one way for us to say “thanks”.

Yale School of Management Graduate Students Conduct Career Development Workshop for Clients

On April 29 graduate students from the Yale School of Management (SOM) conducted a Career Development workshop for clients enrolled in Fellowship Place’s Supported Employment program. Nine volunteers from SOM met one on one with clients to help with resume writing and to practice interview skills. After the workshop, some of the volunteers stayed for dinner and karaoke with people on campus for the Evening Social program. A special shout out to SOM for sharing their expertise with us and to Arielle Sydnor, our Board Fellow, for organizing the event. Our clients learned a lot and were inspired by the students.
