Meet Philisa

Workforce Challenge

Philisa was a struggling high school student in need of work experience, financial assistance, and self-confidence. She was entering her senior year and needed not only financial assistance to complete college applications, but also support and encouragement to start believing that she could raise herself out of poverty.

Workforce Solution

Participation in the Summer Youth Work Experience, where she was placed at the local Boys & Girls club as a youth mentor, helped Philisa see first hand the challenges that can be overcome with determination. She met many others in tough social and economic situations.

Outcomes & Benefits

Following her Work Experience placement, Philisa's grades improved. She has applied for colleges and scholarships and is hoping to pursue her dreams by furthering her education after high school. Good luck, Philisa!
