Meet Scott

Workforce Challenge

Scott was attending Yuba College and pursuing a degree in English. He heard about the Yuba County 1-Stop from a friend who had become employed after enrollment in the WIA program. The Yuba County 1-Stop is governed by the North Central Counties Consortium (NCCC), and is a proud partner of America’s Job Center of California.

Workforce Solution

At the 1-Stop, Scott met his case manager, who helped him find a position with an up-and-coming housing company. Though this company had much to teach Scott about carpentry and layout, my he was laid off just weeks after being put on the payroll because an investor pulled out. Scott headed back to 1-Stop, and once again Bryan helped him find an even better position with a sheet metal and HVAC company.

Outcomes & Benefits

"Not only am I able to use what I learned from [working in the housing industry] in this trade, I've also been given the opportunity to join a union that will provide a full five-year apprenticeship program," said Scott. "I now have a job with great benefits, healthcare and even a retirement plan, all thanks to the Yuba County 1-Stop, the WIA program and Bryan Boyes, [my case manager]. Thank you so much!"
