Our coworkers at No Boundaries joined in on the reminiscing fun! Press play, and allow the festive melody of Celtic Woman guide you through the memories of our wonderful team!

Adrian –

I don’t have one particular memory that I like over all, but I do have this poem called Memories:  

Multiple Memories, Many rush to my mind.  They come in many forms, Mine are mostly good ones. Even though seasons change, Memories eternal.  Lasting through life and time, Everyone’s Memories.

I just wanted to give you 3-4 memories from No Boundaries so far. My 4 favorite memories are giving my first Com-Ed Presentation at the Lincoln Park Zoo, giving a Com-Ed Presentation at Glenbrook North High School (my alma mater), doing two disability awareness trainings with J.J., Alec and the team and going to Trader Joe’s.

I love the disability trainings I do with the JJsList Disability Awareness Players. It makes me feel I am making a difference by making the world a better place.

Amber –

My best memory was whenever we did team work together and getting to know new people.

Austin –

My top memory was going to the bank to learn about how to save your money and having fun with the No Boundaries team. Also, it’s fun to talk with Bill about the Chicago Bears.

Cindy –

My favorite memories at No Boundaries were all of the mock interviews. They  will help me a lot when I apply to jobs in the future. Also, the fashion showcase was awesome, each of us we were modeling and it was fun.

Dan –

My favorite moment of 2014 at No Boundaries was the Keystone Foundation dinner. It was a great opportunity for networking.  I also had an opportunity to meet the CEO of North Shore Community Bank, where I had recently applied for a job.

Donald –

My favorite memories at No Boundaries were each time I got to know new people and all the times Bill made us laugh.

Justice –

My favorite memory was walking on the runway during transformation showcase. I like fashion and posing in front of the audience.

Matthew –

Working with Erin. She has helped me so much as my job coach. She’s helped me understand my job and do even better at it.

Robert –

My favorite memory is when I showed Nicole my friends baby bulldog when my friend first got him. My other favorite memory is when Bill cheered me up by telling me to repeat lyrics from the song “Hot Blooded” by Foreigner.

Sam –

One of my favorite memories was getting to see the Disability Awareness Players at the 1871 Headquarters. Another thing I enjoyed was getting to know a lot of new people. I feel like Adrian and I really connected and he’s just an all-around good person to talk with.

The next session of No Boundaries begins January 5, 2015! Learn more and register today!

Until next year, we wish you a joyous celebration with your family!

I’m not in No Boundaries, at least not yet but I’d like to comment here. I enjoyed meeting Bill and the other new JJ’s List/No Boundaries/Search Inc. staff and volunteers, and I enjoy working with Bill. Here’s to more fun-filled Disability Awareness trainings in 2015. Happy New Year everyone!
