Shai-Day Martin Alumni Highlight

January 2016

Shai-Day Martin was a member of Drew Subits’ crew Dark Matter in Cohort 4. Before PowerCorpsPHL, she was only interested in working in childcare. PowerCorpsPHL introduced her to environmental work, to cleaning up and beautifying the city. Shai-Day’s outlook on life changed during her time with PowerCorpsPHL. She built a connection to nature and stepped out of her element. Shai-Day no longer sees childcare as her only employment option. She has confidence in herself to accomplish her goals. After graduating PowerCorpsPHL, Shai-Day participated in Episcopal Community Services’ RISE Program. RISE is a job training program where members receive focused support on their resumes, job search, and interviews. Shai-Day graduated RISE in December, 2015. In addition, Shai-Day is a Dental Assistant student at Harris School of Business. She will graduate and begin her Dental Assistant Internship in June of 2016. Shai-Day is still involved with PowerCorpsPHL, she visits regularly and has sat on Alumni Panels and talked with current members. In the future, she would like to give back to her community by owning her own child care facility.
