Michal became a student at Easterseals Academy in 2007. In September 2015, Michal began working once a week at the F.O.P. Chicago Lodge 7 Gift Shop, folding shirts and pricing merchandise.
When Easterseals creates employment partnerships for its transition aged students, the goal is for the students to be able to continue their jobs after graduation. There has been a wonderful relationship between Michal, his family, the F.O.P., and Easterseals which has allowed Michal to continue employment at the gift shop.
Michal has also been able to continue his relationship with Easterseals as an employee of HarrysButtons.com at Easterseals, where he does everything from making buttons, to operating a heat press machine for graphics transfers and data entry.
Easterseals would like to thank everyone at the F.O.P Chicago Lodge 7 and the gift shop for their outstanding support of Michael. You have been a positive example for all employers.
