The staff at WIA Youth Succeed supported Odessa in many ways toward her success with the most important being financial support. The Youth program fully funded her CNA Certification including the purchase of scrubs, tools, and provided transportation assistance to class.

Outcomes & Benefits

Odessa completed her CNA Certification and subsequently enrolled at Metro State University to continue her education in the medical field. Odessa is using her CNA certification to work part time while pursuing her higher education.
