Meet Allen

Workforce Challenge

Even without a high school diploma, Allen was determined to be educated and enrolled in classes at Victor Valley College. However, without a job or means of support, the young father of two was struggling to make ends meet. He needed career guidance to build a strong future.

Workforce Solution

Allen was referred to the Career Institute. Under a program funded by the San Bernardino County WIB, he began studying for his high school diploma. He was also placed in a work experience position at Staples.

Outcomes & Benefits

In his first month at Staples, Allen was named Employee of the Month and his internship has now become a permanent position. Once he’s completed his high school diploma, he plans to earn a degree and become a college counselor. Allen said, "I am extremely grateful for this opportunity.”
