Meet Timothy

Workforce Challenge

When Timothy entered the WIA Youth program, he was an unemployed 21 year old with a high school diploma, but he was basic skills deficient in both math and reading. He needed to bring these levels up in order to enter the workforce.

Workforce Solution

At the Columbia One Stop, Timothy received assistance from the WIA program and after taking some required courses, increased his reading by 5 levels and his math skills by 3 levels. In addition, Timothy successfully completed his Desktop Support Specialist Certificate as well as his Network Administrator Program Certificate. He was now ready to take the next step of looking for a job.

Outcomes & Benefits

With his two IT Certifications in hand, Timothy was employed part-time at New Horizons Computer Learning Center as an Instructor. After a few months, he moved on to full time employment with Ellet Brothers as an IT Analyst. Congratulations, Timothy!
