Meet Thomas

Workforce Challenge

Thomas was homeless and unemployed. He came to Workforce Boulder County looking for job opportunities. He utilized the resource room and attended a job fair.

Workforce Solution

Thomas worked with the WIOA Adult program and was enrolled in a Hazmat Supervisor Training Course through International Environmental & Safety. He also was able to find secure, temporary housing through the Boulder Shelter. Thomas's training was located all the way down in Aurora - Thomas navigated his way there across town using the RTD bus system, arriving promptly each day for his training.

Outcomes & Benefits

Thomas earned his certificate for completion and successfully passed the examination. He is scheduled to take the state exam in June, but has already been offered a position with a company in Grand Junction. He reported that in addition to the job in Grand Junction, he had five other offers for employment on the last day of class. Thomas said, "Things are looking up!!"
