Meet Hugo

Workforce Challenge

Hugo is a 42 year old former Los Angeles Unified School District Adult Education instructor. He worked for LAUSD for over 11 years. Unfortunately because of the budget cuts he received notice of a reduction in force that meant his last day with LAUSD would be Jun 30, 2012. Hugo has been out of work for over one year.

Workforce Solution

Hugo learned about the NEG program through an orientation he attended at Hollywood WorkSource Center. Hugo wished to update his computer skills by obtaining certification as an Enterprise Network IT Professional. He believes the certification will help him get back into the workforce and find a private sector job. Hugo had been looking into this type of training for a while, but he couldn’t afford any kind of training to upgrade his skills. Once he learned that the NEG program could assist him with the training fees, he was thankful for the opportunity.

Outcomes & Benefits

Hugo started his training with IDT in May 2013. He is attending school daily. He has good grades and is learning new skills and is looking forward to his future.
