Meet Ashley

Workforce Challenge

Ashley Harrison couldn’t find a job in an economy with youth unemployment estimated around 30 percent.

Workforce Solution

Ashley enrolled in the San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board's Summer WIA Youth program in 2009. This special program was funded by American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Ashley received life skills training, work experience and an entry into the professional world through WIA Youth on the job training. "When I see what my friends are doing for work, compared to what I am doing, I see how much this program has helped me," said Ashley.

Outcomes & Benefits

Ashley is now a full-time college student and part-time team member of the San Bernardino County Economic Development Agency.
