New Year, New West End House – Meet Perla

We’re counting down to 2018 by sharing the stories and dreams of a West End House young person each day this week. Read on to meet Perla, a West End House Peer Leader who works in our Fitness Program. Perla is one of 65 teens employed year-round at West End House, making West End House the second largest teen employer in Boston.

in her own words:

“I’ve been a Peer Leader at West End House for 2 years. I’ve learned how to communicate with my supervisor and how to be professional in an office. I’m looking forward to growing in my role and taking on more responsibilities.

West End House opened its new College & Career Center in September. I go there almost every day for homework help and tutoring, to learn about the college application process, and to take workshops on leadership and job skills. I’m excited for the Teen Social Space to open at West End House in Spring 2018!”
