Meet Ashley

Workforce Challenge

Ashley, a senior in high school, heard about the ARRA program and was very interested. Her mother is a single parent of two high school students. With "Senior Dues" coming up -- a payment to fund senior activities -- Ashley thought the program would be a great way to help her mother out by earning money for monthly bills and her senior fees.

Workforce Solution

Ashley was enrolled in the ARRA program at a local worksite. While there, she was able to pay all of her senior dues and help her mother out with the monthly bills. She also received assistance in developing a resume for future job searches.

Outcomes & Benefits

Ashley received her last pay check and went to the store and purchased a thank you card for her mother. She put her whole check in the card and told her mother that she was thankful for all she has done for her and her sister and told her to go buy something for herself. She now has an after-school job at a restaurant in town. "This program is a great way for kids to stay off the street and help their families," said Ashley.
