Meet Zoey

Workforce Challenge

Typical of many youth, Zoey was struggling in high school, and she didn’t know what she wanted to do when she graduated. However, Zoey did something about it.

Workforce Solution

Working with Community and Corporate Education, a division of North Central Michigan College and Michigan Works! Northeast Consortium, Zoey participated in the WIA Youth Program, which provided help with tutoring, job shadowing, career exploration and leadership. Through the job shadowing, Zoey gained exposure, leadership skills and confidence to take charge in a variety of situations. She was also able to explore careers in our local area.

Outcomes & Benefits

Through the WIA Youth Program, Zoey’s diligence helped her graduate on time, and she did such a great job shadowing at Big Lots that they hired her as a stock person and cashier. She loves her retail job and the people she works with.
