Meet Jerry

Workforce Challenge

After his release from prison, Jerry faced several large barriers to employment. He was on parole and had a lack of in-demand skills. Jerry’s parole officer recommended the Re-Entry program funded by the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board to help him get back on his feet and find employment.

Workforce Solution

Through the Re-Entry program, Jerry received no-cost services such as assistance with writing his resume, filling out applications, preparing for interviews and computer skills training. With hard work and support from the Workforce Investment Board, Jerry secured a position with Dalton Trucking as a Class A Driver.

Outcomes & Benefits

Speaking of his achievement Jerry said: “Now that I have successfully completed parole, obtained a higher education, and acquired a great job in a career field I enjoy, I want to give my deepest respect and gratitude to the Workforce Investment Board for their support. I also hope my story encourages others who find themselves in the same situation.”
