Meet Jason

Workforce Challenge

Jason came into our workforce center in July, 2013 seeking a WIA scholarship to complete his training in Renewable Energy. He was a recently discharged veteran who served in the U.S. Navy for 8 years and only worked part time as a musician.

Workforce Solution

To assist Jason financially while he was in training for a new career after the military, we approved Jason for a WIA scholarship to pay for part of his tuition. This financial assistance enabled Jason to complete his training.

Outcomes & Benefits

Jason graduated with an Associate's Degree in Renewable Energy on Sept. 27, 2014. On Sept. 29, 2014, Jason started a new job in Renewable Energy making $19.50 an hour. He now has a stable career with a good financial future.
