CDLE - Southeast Workforce Center

Meet Danny

Workforce Challenge

Danny is a 16-year-old boy who dropped out of school at 14. He is from a large, two-parent family; his father is employed, but the family struggles financially.

Workforce Solution

Danny had just started work on his GED when he met staff from the workforce center. He was interested in services, and approached her after class. She explained the application process, and he obtained all of the required documentation so he could enroll as quickly as possible. While Danny worked towards his GED, his case manager worked with TSJC to recruit a mentor and create a paid work experience for him in the school IT department.

Outcomes & Benefits

As soon as Danny passes his last test next month, he will begin his 150 hours of work experience and work with a mentor who will introduce him to every aspect of IT available at TSJC and the classes he will need to work towards industry certifications and employment.
