Meet Morgan

Workforce Challenge

Morgan was referred from Employment First to the Adams County Workforce & Business Center's Youth Succeed Program. She had been struggling to support her child and spouse and had to drop out during her senior year of high school to provide for her family. During participation in the program Morgan and her family separated and she was faced with living on her own. Morgan found a new job and was not able to attend GED prep but had scored high on her practice tests and requested that program pay for official tests without GED prep.

Workforce Solution

Morgan's case manager continued to engage and encourage Morgan through her losses, finding a new home, and a job. Maintaining contact with Morgan was extremely difficult due to conflicts with hours, but her case manager never gave up on her to complete her educational goal. When it was determined that Morgan could not attend GED prep courses, her case manager advocated for the Youth Succeed Program to assist with test fees without the program getting credit for her educational attainment.

Outcomes & Benefits

Morgan successfully completed her GED in September 2015. Morgan is now exploring college and post-secondary options with her case manager for successful enrollment into college classes in Spring 2016.
