Please meet Richter! Success Story

Please meet Richter!

Every so often our housing program finds the most interesting young people.  We know that giving the support, and nurturing required for young adults yields a very happy and productive person.

Richter moved into Vita Nova Village in April 2018.  Since then he has been working hard adjusting to his new surroundings, and support provided by the team.  Early on it was clear that Richter wanted to complete goals related to school and his education.  Richter was slated to graduate from Seminole Ridge in June and he continued the daily commute to Loxahatchee to attend his classes and then in June he happily received his high school diploma. He then promptly registered for classes at Palm Beach State College, full-time, and reports that he is enjoying his college experience.  Like most first year college students he realized some uncertainty regarding a career choice, but through some discussion Richter decided to obtain a degree in Sound Engineering since he is very interested in the music business.

Beyond academic goals – Richter is very focused on employment.  Vita Nova connected him to a local resource for employment called, Career Source, and he enrolled in a employment program.  He quickly received a 40-hour/week internship at Walgreens.

Although quick to lend a hand on campus and help out where he can, Richter tends to keep his focus on his goals and the swiftest way of achieving them. Richter is fiercely independent, by how neat and orderly he keeps his apartment and belongings.  The Village staff chase after him asking him if he needs assistance, however; his reply is typically, “I’ve got it.”  Feel free to schedule an appointment to take a tour of our Village Program and meet Richter or any of our other awesome residents! We would love to show you around.
