Meet Angela

Workforce Challenge

Angela is a Youth Works participant, working part time at Applebee's to support herself and attend college. She was struggling to afford all of her tuition and the required supplies for the high-cost dental program at Pueblo Community College. In the summer, she would work extra shifts because she knew she wouldn't be able to work many hours when the fall semester started. Applebee's could not work around her demanding school schedule, so she was only able to work extra occasional shifts.

Workforce Solution

She applied and was accepted into the Pueblo Youth Works program which assisted with her tuition and supplies.

Outcomes & Benefits

She successfully finished her final semester and passed her exams. She graduated in May, 2017, with an Associates of Applied Science Degree and a Certificate in Local Anesthetic and Nitrous Oxide.
