Meet Michael

Workforce Challenge

Michael came to the workforce center with no work history even though he was 26 years old. He had been working with Vocational Rehab, but has had no luck in finding employment that would fit his needs or provide a mentor for him.

Workforce Solution

A local employer working with those infected with HIV and AIDS took a chance on Michael and offered him a paid work experience internship.

Outcomes & Benefits

Michael is now doing well in the first paid work of his entire life. He is gaining valuable work experience and learning what it takes to be a good employee. His supervisor has said that Michael is doing well and has learned so much from being given this opportunity.
