A successful future for young adults can be accomplished by a support system simply believing in their aspirations. Enrolling in Reconcile New Orleans’ STRIVE Future Leaders program provides a safe space for Interns to find their passion. Gomol (pronounced Ja-Mal) came to Reconcile with the dream of becoming a Chef in his own restaurant.

“I loved starting my day at Reconcile. I was able to connect with my peers during group sessions like Word of the Day and work towards my goal of becoming a Chef.”


 Learning new skill sets can be challenging. Reconcile’s Workforce Training Program, supported by STRIVE Future Leaders, helped Gomol met the challenge with confidence to successfully earn industry accredited credentials. Through this program, Gomol was connected with Ace Hotel New Orleans for a training Externship where he was later hired as full-time staff. Gomol recently graduated from Reconcile’s program. STRIVE Future Leaders make it possible for Interns like Gomol to receive all the tools and resources needed for an exceptional training experience.

“Every day I was able to meet new people in the Café and learn new skills working in the kitchen. Being at Reconcile reminded me that I’m on the right path to reach my goal.”
