Workforce Challenge

Jordan came to the youth program from a low income family. His parents suffered from chronic unemployment. He had never had a job and did not have a good understanding of what it meant to work.

Workforce Solution

Through the youth program, Jordan successfully kept his first summer internship and began to develop his own work ethic and learn about overcoming his own barriers to employment. Jordan was then placed at a 2nd internship at Jaci’s Cookies where he was mentored and learned about working in the culinary arts, specifically in a small business, which matched with Jordan’s career goals.

Outcomes & Benefits

Upon completion of his internship at Jaci’s Cookies, Jordan accepted a part-time position to join their staff.
