Jorge enrolled in Atlantis Academy Miami’s L.I.F.E. Program (Living Independently with Fundamental Experiences) in 2015.
While enrolled, Jorge gained valuable work and volunteer experience through opportunities with some of Atlantis Academy’s community partners. Through the program he learned important decision-making and problem-solving skills, participated in community involvement and learned how to advocate for himself and others in the community.
Since graduating from the program, Jorge has earned a certificate in food handling safety and has been happily employed at Panda Express for over a year.
