Meet Lauren

Workforce Challenge

Lauren registered with the America's Job Center of California a little over a year ago and had several challenges heading into the Disability Employment Initiative (DEI) program. Lauren does not drive and has to rely on family members for transportation. although she expressed a desire to be more self-reliant, this presented obstacles with her family who were extremely protective of Lauren.

Workforce Solution

Lauren began attending job readiness workshops and started interacting with other participants in the DEI program. She began to get a sense of what she could accomplish and her confidence level began to grow.

Outcomes & Benefits

Lauren started a work experience program in January 2014 as a Document Scanning Operator. She was thrilled to start work, gain work experience, and get paid while learning. After the work experience program completed, Lauren started an On-the-Job training program to gain more experience. The company was happy with Lauren's progress and offered her a position as a regular employee. She is very happy with her new job!
