Work in Progress
In October, KNPR producer Rachel Christiansen (right) and Desert Companion staff writer Heidi Kyser (left) spent time at Boulder Station with the people behind Pathway to Work, an on-the-job training program for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Here, Christiansen and Kyser interview Pamela Stevens, a trainee who went through the Opportunity Village program before being hired as a permanent employee at Boulder Station. Stevens was on break from her job in the casino’s busy Grand Cafe.
