Meet Jeffrey

Workforce Challenge

Jeffrey was a high school student who did not know what he wanted to do. He struggled financially and needed a job, but he had no work experience, no résumé and didn't even know where to start.

Workforce Solution

Jeffrey completed a work readiness workshop and created a résumé. Through the youth program, he worked over the summer at a local roller skating rink. When the work program ended, the skating rink hired him on part time. He enrolled himself in a 10 month heating and air conditioning school and took out loans to do it.

Outcomes & Benefits

Jeffrey still works at the roller skating rink, and recently got a raise. He has developed great customer service skills. Jeffrey will graduate from his HVAC program in August 2014. He is currently looking for a better job that gives him technical know-how in his field of choice. "The [youth] program helped me start my life," shared Jeffrey. "I got my first job and customer service experience, and after that I [had the confidence] to do things on my own."
