Diamond gains valuable work experience with Project Life

This summer is Diamond Goodwyn’s third year in Project Life. As a rising senior she has her eyes set on college a year from now and she’s grateful that MNDC has prepared her for a possible future as a Business Administration major.

Like the other Project Life graduates, Diamond spent ten weeks this year learning about crafting her resume, writing cover letters, and improving her communication and people skills. In past years, she worked at the Salvation Army and the Montclair Art Museum, but this year found her at the MNDC office, answering the phone, filing, and keeping the office organized. “The program gives kids an understanding of  how the work world operates,” she said, “and it’s valuable to learn about being on time and prepared for a job.”
