ADDITIONAL WAYS TO SUPPORT

"Not only have they provided me with my first work experience, Enterprise has allowed self-discovery and personal growth. Throughout my years at Enterprise, I have had numerous job opportunities (at the Olympic Club, as well as City Hall, and now Kaiser), in which each one of them have taught me transferable skills. Given these wonderful opportunities, I now have experience in fields that I would have never considered if it was not for Enterprise. In the future, I hope to take these skills that I have learned into my future job as a way of giving back to Enterprise."
