Meet Ellen Rosenberg, Life Coaching Support Specialist:
I come from a theater background, have a BFA in theater from Hofstra University, and have spent most of my life trying to carve out a niche for myself in this field. While doing everything from being a lifeguard, to office temp worker, to assistant manager of a commercial photo lab, I ran the gamut of survival jobs in NYC. In 2009, I was unemployed and took part in a work force program through the Actors Fund. For a long time I wanted to work with people with special needs. My nephew has Asperger’s Syndrome, and I was at his graduation, and I kept looking at the staff that helped him get to where he was. THAT was what I wanted to do. The woman at the Actors Work Program asked if I had tried Job Path.. As I navigated through Job Path’s web site, I found what I had been looking for and here I am 3 ½ years later, doing what I love, and loving what I do.
I have been able to utilize my theater background by co-facilitating Job Path’s theater group, Outside Voices. Each person in the group has skills and pockets of knowledge about different things. I love being able to help them work on their goals. One young man I work with one-on-one, Emanuel, wanted to get his GED so he can go to college and get a good job. I watched his face light up when he found out he passed on the first try. Emanuel is taking classes now at BMCC in order to improve his reading and writing skills. Emanuel also works part time at a theater in Manhattan. How do I feel about my job here at Job Path? I feel like I’ve finally come home.
