Meet Tyler

Workforce Challenge

Tyler, age 23 and a resident of a rural area, had recently lost his job when he sought Workforce Center assistance in pursuing his GED. He also sought career guidance and full time employment. The Pikes Peak Workforce Center Young Adult Team went to work with his limited in-demand skills and a scattered work history.

Workforce Solution

Through Workforce Center partnerships with regional employers, Tyler entered a paid work experience as the maintenance and groundskeeper at a non-profit regional Wolf and Wildlife Center.

Outcomes & Benefits

Tyler is nearing completion of a 360-hour paid experience where he has mastered new and marketable skills and achieved tailored career-goals related to his work experience position. At the same time, he continues to work closely with his career counselor in preparation for his TABE assessment in pursuit of his GED. Congratulations Tyler!
