Meet Alejandro

Workforce Challenge

When seventeen-year-old Alejandro entered the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board’s youth program in 2012, it was the beginning of a new life. Alejandro was a young father with no work experience, but with the support received from the youth program, he completed high school.

Workforce Solution

After graduation, the Workforce Investment Board's youth program placed Alejandro in a job with Best Buy to gain work experience. He attended a training program and after the work experience ended, used his newly acquired customer service and workplace skills to find another job with a local restaurant.

Outcomes & Benefits

In August 2013, Alejandro took the next step toward a stable future for himself and his son by enrolling in college courses. He is now working part time and attending college.
