Meet Jerry

Workforce Challenge

After his release from prison, Jerry faced several large barriers to employment. He was on parole and he had a lack of in-demand skills. To help Jerry get back on his feet, the parole officer recommended him to the Re-entry program funded by the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board.

Workforce Solution

Through the Re-entry program, Jerry received no-cost services such as assistance with writing his resume, filling out applications, preparing for interviews and computer skills training.

Outcomes & Benefits

With hard work and support from the Workforce Investment Board, Jerry secured a position with Dalton Trucking as a Class A Driver. Speaking of his achievement, Jerry said, “Now that I have successfully completed parole, obtained a higher education, and acquired a great job in a career field I enjoy, I want to give my deepest respect and gratitude to the Workforce Investment Board for their support. I also hope my story encourages others who find themselves in the same situation.”
