Meet Cain

Workforce Challenge

Cain has overcome many obstacles on his path to success. He came from a physically abusive home life and has struggled financially. His mother was a divorced single parent receiving public assistance from SNAP and TANF while raising three children. Cain’s income from jobs he has worked over the years often went to help support his family. He navigated all of his responsibilities with Asperger’s Syndrome, and he also eventually dropped out of high school, finding school not challenging enough.

Workforce Solution

Cain enrolled in the WIOA Youth Succeed program through the Adams County Workforce and Business Center. His case manager helped him create his first resume and cover letter and helped place him in a paid work experience with the City and County of Broomfield IT Department as a Hardware Intern. Assisting with transportation and vehicle repair, the program helped ensure his successful completion. His case manager provided vocational guidance, support for navigating a difficult home life, assistance taking on adult responsibilities as a teenager, and assistance to help him earn his GED and attend a CompTIA Security+ training in cyber security, his chosen career pathway.

Outcomes & Benefits

Cain earned his GED, gained work experience in the IT field, and successfully completed an extended 6-month internship. He is working on earning his IT certification. He has also assisted with program design for the Youth Succeed program and recently committed to joining the Youth Subcommittee of the Adams County Workforce Development Board to give back for other youth in the program. He is truly stepping up up as a young leader. He plans to attend college for Computer Science after he moves states.
