Meet Harold

Workforce Challenge

Even before Harold was laid off from his warehouse position, he was researching other professions that would see him past retirement age. He decided to pursue the medical field, and he knew that he needed training. Luckily, Harold's son was enrolled in a regional occupational program at the time, where an instructor told the class about the Workforce Investment Board as a source for help.

Workforce Solution

Harold visited the Workforce Investment Board and received training assistance, including funds for tuition, books and fees paid.

Outcomes & Benefits

Harold has since graduated with an Associate of Science degree. He now has a pending job offer, and he insists that the Workforce Investment Board helped him stay strong for himself and his family. He says, "I never gave up because I never knew what was going to happen. This program made it possible for me to support my family."
