Meet Christina

Workforce Challenge

Employment Services of Weld County received a referral form from a Chafee Foster Care Independence Program worker concerned with how difficult it would be for Christina to obtain employment. Christina had no prior work history and several barriers to employment. She struggled with completing job applications and didn't have the confidence to create a resume.

Workforce Solution

The ESWC Youth Team provided Christina with opportunities to develop interviewing skills and resume development through available workshops. Christina's youth case manager provided additional hands-on career counseling and supported her with completing several job applications.

Outcomes & Benefits

Christina quickly obtained employment at a local restaurant where she is currently gaining work experience. This job allows her to save money so that she is more prepared as she transitions out of foster care.
