Meet Linsey

Workforce Challenge

Linsey had faced many challenges after losing her full-ride athletic scholarship due to an ankle injury. She spent many years in an abusive relationship, trying to fight a drug addiction and going in and out of jail. She needed to get back on the right path.

Workforce Solution

Upon being released on parole, Linsey was assigned to the PRIME (Providing Re-entry Into Meaningful Employment) program with Arapahoe/Douglas Works!. This is an On the Job Training (OJT) program that helps businesses with the costs of hiring and training an individual who is on parole from the Colorado Department of Corrections into a full-time, W-2 position.

Outcomes & Benefits

The PRIME program allowed Linsey the opportunity to get back on track. "I was lucky to have the opportunity to start my life over, with the help of the program and wonderful people at the workforce center to assist me in building my confidence. I started my OJT at Real Green Marketing back in March and am still working my way up in the company after two promotions. I can hear my workforce specialist's voice encouraging me to never give up on myself."
