Heart At Work: Jon helps people gain life changing career skills

February 16, 2022 | Heart At Work

Through our Workforce Innovation and Talent Centers (part of Workforce Initiatives), Jon Dasilva has helped countless people learn job skills to gain meaningful employment. Incredibly, he created a mock CVS Pharmacy and Store at his former high school to teach and train students. Among them, McKenzie Schiavone who became a pharmacy technician at 17. “CVS has opened so many doors for me,” says McKenzie, a top student who, at the time, was struggling with challenges like homelessness.

Thank you, Jon, for giving McKenzie and so many others a path forward.
