Training Nationals to be Therapists continue to be a BIG passion and calling of mine. This year has been full of opportunities to contribute to this area. Starting in January I had 3 young men come for 10 weeks to the Miriam Center and do their level 2 clinical's for their Rehab Tech Degree and then in March I had 2 Young women come to do the same. Both of those group of students had the opportunity to work at STAND. The first set of students got to go to PAP to help at New Life children's Home and the second set of students got to help with PHOENIX RISING. This week my third set of students started. I have 1 student for 10 weeks and 2 rehab tech volunteers for 3 months coming to get specialized training in pediatrics to help them get jobs in the future.

I am planning on hiring 2 more Rehab Technicians to work at the Miriam Center in August. I am praying and looking for the right 2 people. Please join me in praying I will find the right 2 to join our Miriam Center team!
During the weak of STAND I had a wonderful group of Rehab Technicians working with me. I had my 2 Staff Bernadette and Monise. I also had my 2 Rehab Tech Students from LLU/UNAH Phoebe & Jenny. I also had 2 Rehab Techs that came to volunteer & get more pediatric experience Yvon and Erland.
