Meet Destiny

Workforce Challenge

Destiny came into the Jeffco American Job Center (AJC) Youth Room seeking direction. She did not complete high school and did not have any work experience. Destiny knew she needed more education or training to get a job and be able to support herself.

Workforce Solution

Through mentoring and tutoring, the AJC Youth Services Team assisted Destiny in obtaining her GED. Wanting to do more for her, the AJC arranged an internship at a law firm. After her internship, Youth Services helped Destiny find a job with TCF Bank while she enrolled in college to obtain her Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) certification. Destiny was so motivated and grateful for the work of the Youth Services Team that she volunteered time to teach financial literacy courses to other youth at the AJC Youth Room.

Outcomes & Benefits

Destiny obtained her GED along with real world work experience. She is on track to complete her CNA training, which will enable her to provide for herself. The self-confidence and motivation Destiny acquired during her development can only be measured by the fact that even in her new, busier life, she found time to come back and teach other youth who were in her same situation. Great job, Destiny!
