Workforce Challenge

Justin is an adjudicated young adult whose probation required him to obtain a High School Equivalency diploma, but he has struggled with school most of his life..

Workforce Solution

Justin enrolled in the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Youth Program in March 2014 to receive assistance with obtaining his High School Equivalency. The WIA Case Manager from Employment Services of Weld County provided guidance in order for Justin to obtain an age waiver to test as he is only 16 years old. The Case Manager walked him through the process to expedite the approval.

Outcomes & Benefits

Justin completed and passed two official tests in March 2014 and two in April 2014. He was the first individual enrolled in the various programs at Employment Services of Weld County to obtain his High School Equivalency Diploma after this year's changes to the GED in 2014.
