Meet Leonor

Workforce Challenge

Leonor was a long-term TANF(Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) recipient and had not worked in several years. She had recently obtained her GED and was in search of a new career. Leonor did have some previous job experience, but was in need of skills upgrading/retraining.

Workforce Solution

Leonor came to the Northern Arizona Council of Governments (NACOG) and received a career assessment, job development and case management services. She was given the opportunity to participate in an on-the-job training (OJT)

Outcomes & Benefits

Leonor eventually gained permanent employment through the OJT as an office manager with a local program that assists people to obtain their GED. This position has given Leonor the opportunity to serve her community, as well as receive certification from the State of Arizona to adminster the GED test. The services Leonor received have launched her back into the workforce and into a career that impacts others for their success.
