Meet Jenny

Workforce Challenge

Constantly trying to improve herself, Jenny was on the hunt for employment. When she visited the Inglewood Teen Center and learned about the various enrichment programs, academic assistance and employment workshops, she wanted to enroll.

Workforce Solution

Staff guided Jenny towards the Blueprint Program, which focuses on the qualities and skills necessary to prepare youth to begin the job searching process. She enrolled and started the 30-hour introductory course. Upon completion, Jenny attended the Blueprint for Workplace Success Youth Job Fair.

Outcomes & Benefits

During the event, Jenny interviewed and was hired by Party City. The following year at the same event, she became the interviewer for Party City seeking new candidates. Now, as a first-year student at California State University Dominguez Hills, Jenny says, “Without the (Blueprint) program, I wouldn’t have been confident enough during the interview process. My main goal right now is to continue school and get my degree. I am so grateful to the Inglewood Teen Center and Party City for giving me an opportunity to improve myself.”
