Meet Matt

Workforce Challenge

Matt was a fire captain employed in the area for many years when, due to health reasons, was forced to retire. With a mass layoff in the area, his health restrictions and his age as a barrier to employment, Matt struggled to find permanent placement, even with the multitude of experience and certifications he possessed. With him being the breadwinner of the household, Matt came to me to seek help with the WIA program as an eligible adult.

Workforce Solution

The WIA staff was able to work with Matt to assist him to develop an individual employment plan. Working closely with the Wichita Truck Driving School, Matt was able to enroll in the classroom for CDL with the intention of him becoming a driver.

Outcomes & Benefits

Matt already has a position lined up in his community where his training will be utilized and allowing him to become self-sufficient yet again. He is terribly excited to return to the workforce
