Two student cadets of the Maryland Freestate ChalleNGe Academy took part in a multi-day job shadowing program with Freedom Federal Credit Union last month. Cadets Rachelle Munson and Alyssa Kendle were selected to take part in the four-day job shadowing experience.
The staff of Freedom offered job insight along with overviews of daily activities, tasks and responsibilities pertaining to their position within Freedom. In this way, cadets learned valuable firsthand experience as they consider their future career endeavors.
As one of the original states to begin the program, the Maryland Freestate ChalleNGe Academy, on Aberdeen Proving Ground and directed by the National Guard, is a tuition-free program which provides at-risk adolescents 16 to 18 years old an opportunity to make positive changes in their lives and to acquire the skills, education and self-discipline needed to become responsible, productive citizens.
According to Rose Ann Lambert, Freedom's president and CEO, "Freedom is proud of the developing partnership with the Freestate ChalleNGe Academy and is supporting their efforts in developing these teens."
