Meet Darsi

Workforce Challenge

Darsi came into the Golden Sierra Job Training Center as a job seeker with multiple barriers to employment, including significant legal issues. She was unable to return to her previous industry and was very discouraged. Resource center staff spoke with her and determined she was a candidate for the DEI (Disability Employment Initiative) program. Darsi was receiving SSDI benefits and was interested in benefits counseling and in learning more about work incentives for the Ticket To Work program.

Workforce Solution

Darsi began attending Active Job Seekers networking events and registering for all the "How To" workshops. She also attended the Peer Advisory Group. The Center staff talked with Darsi and recommended she contact The Eternity Challenge, an organization that serves and employs populations with similar barriers. Staff felt she would be a good match for their organization.

Outcomes & Benefits

Darsi was very happy with the services she received at Golden Sierra Job Training Center and was on board with the recommendation of contacting The Eternity Challenge. After several meetings with The Eternity Challenge she was offered a position with their organization in Property Management Administration.
