Westfield resident Anthony DePaolo was selected to receive the Summer Youth Employment Grant from the Westfield Foundation to work at the 2011 Westfield Summer Workshop.
The purpose of this grant is to enable a student in the community the opportunity to develop work place skills and expand his or her job opportunities. DePaolo, who has been at the WSW for 3 years, is presently the senior hall monitor. He remarks that one aspect of his job is to “ensure the safety of the kids participating in Workshop activities.” He continues that he “ helps set up and break down the Workshop and delivers the necessary supplies to the classrooms.” At the conclusion of the morning program each day, DePaolo assists the WSW administrative staff members with various office duties.
A 2009 graduate of Westfield High School, DePaolo will enter his junior year at Seton Hall University as a biology major with plans to become a pharmacist.
The Westfield Summer Workshop is a division of the New Jersey Workshop for the Arts, a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization, located at 150-152 East Broad Street, Westfield. For more information about the WSW or other NJWA programs, please call 908-789-9696 or log on to www.njworkshopforthearts.com
