Meet Guadalupe

Workforce Challenge

Guadalupe came to Workforce Boulder County with no work experience, no resume, and few interview skills. She was living with her family in a small space and was trying to support her two young sons and her husband.

Workforce Solution

Guadalupe enrolled into the WIOA Young Adult program with the goal of increasing her basic skills. Her case manager reviewed her situation and assisted her with applying for Food Assistance, TANF, and Housing Assistance. She was also provided with support in developing a resume and to improve her interviewing skills. Additionally, she was offered the opportunity to participate in an internship.

Outcomes & Benefits

Guadalupe increased her basic skills to above the 9th grade level and recently moved into a new apartment with her children and husband. She created a beautiful resume that highlighted her volunteer experience. She interviewed for and received an internship with Boulder County Administrative Services in which she has excelled. She continually receives high praise from her supervisor and they have stated they would like to hire her upon completion of her internship.
