Meet Tyresha

Workforce Challenge

When Tyresha White's father passed away, she and her family were stunned. As one of seven children, Tyresha needed to help her mom with her younger siblings. But she didn't have a job.

"My Dad took care of everything and I thought it would always be like that," she said.

But when she learned about the year-round Workforce Investment Act youth program through the PAL Center, Tyresha found hope.

Workforce Solution

"They assisted with me with bus passes and gas money as well as food vouchers for me and my family," she said.

Tyresha not only received work and life skills training, but she also found her life goal to become a Physician's Assistant.

Outcomes & Benefits

"I completed the CNA course and I'm now working at Country Villa Hacienda and I will begin my general education courses at San Bernardino Valley College," she said. "I no longer depend on anyone else and I hope that I'm making my Dad proud."
