Read the story of Nestor, AAMA’s programme participant
Nestor, who is 22 years old, came to the W&LC via a friend’s recommendation. Prior to joining the programme, he was struggling to find a job. While receiving the training at the WLC, Nestor increased his self-confidence and displayed great leadership amongst his peers.
He successfully completed the programme and went on to a paid internship at Human Age Digital, a digital enterprise that helps mission-driven organizations organise political campaigns and discover new supporters. Furthermore, thanks to the skills he has acquired in the programme, Nestor created a YouTube channel for his father’s business. More recently, he secured a job with Amazon getting paid $15 per hour. Nestor says that the W&LC has given him confidence to engage with new people and has opened doors that he never knew were there.
