Meet Sarah

Workforce Challenge

A single mother of two boys, Sarah had dropped out of high school. She lacked basic skills and did not have a high school equivalency diploma. After learning about the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board's youth program through a local high school, she decided to check it out.

Workforce Solution

At the Needles Center for Change, Sarah received tutoring and the opportunity to complete her GED, both funded by the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board. The County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board also provided funds to pay for Sarah’s GED test.

Outcomes & Benefits

In addition to earning her GED, Sarah is entering the work-experience portion of the program and has been placed in a local bakery. She is thrilled to prove herself and provide for her family.

“I am inspired and thankful for the guidance I received from Needles Center for Change and the Workforce Investment Board. Someday, I hope to own my own bakery thanks to this program,” Sarah shares.
