Workforce Challenge

Brooke was a young adult who had recently obtained her GED with the help of Hope House, a nonprofit in Adams County serving teenage mothers. She was not sure what career pathway she was interested in, but she thought she might be interested in the medical field.

Workforce Solution

Brooke heard about an opportunity to attend a healthcare pre-apprenticeship by the Central Colorado Area Health Education Center. Brooke was enrolled in the WIOA Youth Succeed program through the Adams County Workforce Center, and the program paid the cost of the pre-apprenticeship. She was given hands-on training and earned certifications in Basic Life Support, Bloodborne Pathogens, CPR, HIPAA, and Youth Mental Health First Aid.

Outcomes & Benefits

Brooke explored a number of career options in healthcare and related fields. Brooke ultimately decided that she was interested in a career in forensic anthropology and wanted to pursue post-secondary education. She is currently enrolled at Front Range Community College in a Criminal Justice pre-requisite program and received grants to cover her full cost of tuition. She plans to transfer to a 4-year college after completing the program.
