Meet Angel

Workforce Challenge

After being in the Armored Guard Service for several years, Angel found herself unemployed. She came to the Workforce Center seeking to obtain her High School Equivalency (HSE) Diploma, as not having graduated from high school has hindered her from obtaining gainful employment.

Workforce Solution

Angel was enrolled in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Dislocated Worker Program at Employment Services of Weld County and worked with the workforce staff that navigated her through the HSE training program. Through several months of training, she passed all but one of her tests. During this time, Angel obtained full-time employment, and with the conflict of her schedule, was not able to complete her HSE with Employment Services of Weld County.

Outcomes & Benefits

Within the next twelve months, Angel was determined to pass her final test and enrolled in night classes at the community college. She has successfully gained her HSE, continues full time employment and has had more opportunities for advancement.
