Love Your Job! 3 Reasons I Love Working at The Arc of Monroe
Do you love what you are doing? Do you want to love what you do? Then maybe a career at The Arc of Monroe is for you. Here are 3 reasons MCC Experience Program Manager Michelle Frisbee loves working at The Arc of Monroe.
We Strive to Improve
I love that the mission and vision The Arc of Monroe is carried out and emphasized on a daily basis. The leadership team is always looking for ways to improve the lives on the individuals we support and are always willing to “find a way” even if it takes a lot of work. They also have learned that supporting their staff is just as important. I have worked for a few other agencies in the area, and I have truly felt appreciated since starting the job as a CSP (Community Support Specialist) and now a Program Manager.
Opportunities to Grow
I have learned that I have a voice in the program and in the agency. Having a voice means that there are always committees that you can be a part of. Management wants to hear opinions through emails, meetings, and now town hall meetings and they are always offering training to improve yourself.
I Love MCC Experience!
My favorite part is of course working with the individuals in the MCC Experience program! I love seeing their faces when they achieve a goal, complete something that they never thought they could do or realize that they are ready to move on to the next part of their life. I tell students to find a job where they are excited to get up in the morning and I’m lucky that I have found that for myself.
