Meet Juana

Workforce Challenge

Juana was a 19 year old single mom who was unemployed and living with her aunt. She had graduated from high school but was deficient in math. She wanted a full time job but didn’t have any skills or work experience.

Workforce Solution

The Youth WIA program helped Juana identify a career and paid for classes for her to get her Certified Nurse’s Aide license. Juana also took a short term math class. In five months, Juana increased one math level, earned a nurse’s aide certificate and found employment in an assisted living facility.

Outcomes & Benefits

At fourth quarter follow up, Juana was still employed full-time at the facility and enjoying her new job.
