Veronica Brown, Youth Care Worker 2, Tampa, Florida
Veronica Brown loves to help those who can’t help themselves. This has been the motivation that’s kept Veronica working at the G4S Columbus Juvenile Residential Facility in Tampa, Florida, since 2004. Previously, she worked at a retirement community from 1999 to 2004. When she got an opportunity to work for G4S Youth Care Services, she made the choice to help those who needed her most.
As a Youth Care Worker 2, Veronica interacts directly with the young adults who reside in the Columbus Residential Facility. Her role is to guide them through the process of rehabilitation. In her opinion, the best part of her job is “when some of the kids come back to let me know that they have been successful thanks to the program.”
“I can have a flexible schedule, which allows me to go to nursing school,” Veronica said. She would like to become a nurse and continue to work for G4S. Veronica feels confident there is a great future for her with G4S.
