Meet Morgan

Workforce Challenge

At time of enrollment Morgan worked in retail and enlisted in the Air Force Reserves. He was also pursuing his Bachelor’s degree in Aviation, but he was no longer Pell Grant eligible. He had a lot of out of pocket expenses associated with his training, and he was having a hard time paying for them since he was also paying his tuition.

Workforce Solution

Morgan got enrolled in WIOA and VWIP and received tuition assistance from WIOA. VWIP assisted with payment for flying hours so he could earn the required flight hours to obtain his pilot's license.

Outcomes & Benefits

Morgan completed his training and secured a position as Flight Operations Manager, earning a substantially higher salary.

While Morgan was already working on his goal, he definitely was able to attain it much sooner with the assistance of WIOA and VWIP. His case exemplifies the impact WIOA can have in some individuals, specially our Veterans.
