Meet Justin

Workforce Challenge

Justin was a Glenn County job seeker who desired a job that would lead into a stable, year-round career. His prior work history was primarily in the surveying field and seasonal fire fighting. Justin was referred to the Glenn County Human Resource Agency through a friend that was attending the Water Treatment Operations Program through Yuba College.

Workforce Solution

Justin was enrolled into the Water Distribution Training, a WIA 15% project, funded by North Central Counties Consortium. He gained full-time work while attending Yuba College and was able to complete via correspondence. The WIA Program paid for his books and instructional support.

Outcomes & Benefits

Justin entered the Peace Corps as a volunteer and was able to secure a paid position through a contract agency. He was specifically hired because of his knowledge in water distribution, which was considered advanced. Justin is now head of a development team in the efforts to develop a water distribution system in a very remote area in Ethiopia and be part of the Peace Corps mission to promote world peace and friendship.
