A committed and caring administrative professional.
Koby Price was struggling to find work after being laid off during the 2020 pandemic. Through the Building Prosperity Workforce Cohort, he discovered both a professional development program that fit his skills and a supportive group of peers who helped him realize his strengths.
Koby started his career as an administrative support professional, and did that for many years until recently when employers began requiring additional education criteria.
Koby was looking for more than just professional development and employment opportunities. One of his original goals was to activate his volunteerism, community activism, and bolster those areas of his life.
In Koby’s words, one of the most important skills he acquired was speaking with people and networking. It also helped to develop his “emotional intelligence and work with others in group environments.” To him, the fact that it was a “very community-oriented program” made all the difference.
For Koby and other cohort members, simply having a supportive group of peers to talk to and mentors to learn from was a game-changer.
