Meet Timothy

Workforce Challenge

Timothy is a former foster youth who has epilepsy, goes to college full-time but really needed work experience. He visited both Auburn and Roseville Connections centers regularly.

Workforce Solution

The Golden Sierra Workforce Board offered paid on-the-job training programs to eligible youth over the course of a summer. As a result, Timothy interviewed with a small, multimedia and pre-press business.

Outcomes & Benefits

Despite his health issues (which he openly disclosed to the employer) he worked very hard and was offered regular work after the 'internship' ended! Timothy says about Connections, "[the people there] are incredibly helpful and will not stop until you find work."
