Meet Fernando

Workforce Challenge

Fernando's unstable home life was a challenge for him, but despite the difficulties, he graduated from high school and wanted to develop a career.

Workforce Solution

Fernando heard about the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board’s youth program from a friend who had completed the program. He joined Operation M.O.N.E.Y., a grant-funded youth employment and training program, which helped him enroll in a Certified Nursing Assistant training course at Colton Redlands Yucaipa Regional Occupational Program. Throughout Fernando’s training, the Workforce Investment Board supported him by paying for his training, supplies and even his scrubs.

“I could never have saved enough money to pay for the class myself. While I was in the class I struggled with transportation and Operation M.O.N.E.Y helped with that too.”

Outcomes & Benefits

Fernando is now employed as a CNA.
