Meet Shayna

Workforce Challenge

As a 19-year old expectant mom, Shayna recently completed all coursework for cosmetology school online. She visited the Steamboat Springs Workforce Center for financial assistance with travel to take the certification exams as well as the cost associated with one of the exams.

Workforce Solution

Workforce staff enrolled Shayna into the WIA program to provide financial assistance. She was also coached on test taking strategies and time management. Shayna kept in close contact with workforce staff for guidance and encouragement.

Outcomes & Benefits

Shayna took and passed the exams. She then applied for and received her Cosmetology license. Soon after, Shayna got a job at a local hair styling salon. The salon will allow her to take time off when she has the baby and then, return to work when she is ready.
