Mentoring event offers students workplace experience
The Broome-Tioga 2015 Disability Mentoring Day, conducted October 21, began with breakfast at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Binghamton featuring guest speaker Rick Yarosh, a retired U.S. Army sergeant and motivational speaker from Windsor who was injured in Iraq in 2006.

After breakfast, participants toured several local businesses where they got to try their hand at some workplace duties by shadowing employees.

East Learning Center’s Willie Costick (pictured above) learned all about preparing biscuits, breading fish and other related tasks important to the success of the popular Red Lobster restaurant chain.

Other mentor sites included Raymond Corporation, Broome County’s Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena, Pawfessionals, DoubleTree by Hilton and Matthews Planet Pre-Owned.
