—A student and resident of Florida, interned as CHEC Pro’s Health Outreach Coordinator this summer, and was instrumental in the success of this summer’s internship program.
CHEC Pro, is a nonprofit organization seeking to better the neighborhoods in Atlanta’s underserved areas, has expanded its boundaries this summer. CHEC Pro initiated a summer employment opportunity for the youth in the 30314 area code. True to form, CHEC Pro’s summer program encompasses three of the four CHEC pillars; Children, Education and Community.
CHEC Pro has always sought to assist the youth in the community, however, with the release of children from school and into idle summer days, CHEC Pro saw the need to create a productive environment for youth. Mr. Bobby Green, Founder/CEO, located two portals to meet this need; create jobs for teens through local businesses and formulate an alliance with Atlanta Workforce Development. Mr. Green visited business owners and discussed opportunities for youth. Through this connection, six teens in the community were connected to the McDonalds on Martin Luther King Drive for hire.
Through Atlanta Workforce Development Mr. Green was able to develop another area of employment, with assistance from Ms. Deborah Lum and Ms. Shana Ford, as well as Councilman Ivory Young. CHEC Pro hired interns to assist with administrative duties in the office. On July 6, 2009, CHEC Pro provided summer youth employment, as four young women, ages 18-22, was hired from the surrounding neighborhood. Upon their arrival, the interns discussed their ideas, goals and personal backgrounds. CHEC Pro utilized this information to create a work environment that would be catered towards enhancing their desired achievements. One intern wanted to further her nursing training and ultimately become a Registered Nurse, and others aimed to attend college with the purpose of studying psychology, entrepreneurship and social work. CHEC Pro began teaching interns computer

Their most current project is to complete a customer service training program taught by Mrs. Sasha Green, Executive Director and Co-Founder of CHEC Pro. Mrs. Green’s expertise in customer service is displayed in her successful training for the Department of Community Health, thus, overflowing into CHEC Pro’s goals of enhancing the interns and preparing them for college and careers. “Our goal was to give our youth an opportunity to earn an income while expanding their horizons and outlook for the future. This summer, we’ve accomplished that and more!”
This summer issue of CHEC Pro’s newsletter is unique, as it includes articles from the summer interns. It is important for them to stretch their writing skills and then have the ability to see their work distributed in public print. Their articles encompass personal issues and ideals, as they were instructed to write about events that impacted their lives or topics that they felt strongly about.
To date, CHEC Pro’s summer has been filled with excitement through expansion as we began the initial phase of our summer youth program. This has been a taste of what is to come with the hope of increasing the number of interns for summer 2010. “I see this summer program as a demonstration of CHEC Pro’s capacity to provide meaningful service to the community”, says CEO Bobby Green. Truly it is, as the community can anticipate numerous opportunities from CHEC Pro to create a more promising future for the youth in our community.
