Meet Chanaia

Workforce Challenge

Chanaia started attending Denver Workforce Development's "Work4$uccess" classes in December 2013. After completing the initial curriculum in February, however, it was extremely difficult to keep her actively engaged.

Workforce Solution

Chanaia finally enrolled into the Work4$success program in April 2014. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts to have her meet the job developer for career guidance, she came in for a meeting in late May with a new attitude. Her initial meeting was fantastic; she was engaged and ready to work. Her job developer worked individually with her on preparing for interview questions and polishing her resume. After the meeting, she was referred to the Children’s Museum of Denver for a job interview.

Outcomes & Benefits

With positive energy and enthusiasm in full display, Chanaia landed the job at the Children's Museum. Her mother is extremely proud of her. The best part of the whole experience for the Denver Workforce staff was witnessing her feeling of accomplishment when she walked out of the museum gainfully employed.
