Workforce Challenge

Juana's father brought her to the Middle Georgia Consortium because she needed a job. Juana is being raised by her grandmother in an ultra-rural community in southern Houston County. This means a town with no shops, no traffic lights and definitely not any opportunities to gain meaningful work experience for an up and coming young lady. Juana was so personable, cordial and lady-like that one could only think about how the WIA program could help her develop.

Workforce Solution

With Juana's personality and overall impressive nature, she needed to be placed in a worksite with high visibility. Through the Middle Georgia Consortium, Juana was placed in the Public Affairs Office at Robins Air Force Base where she performed her duties with excellence. At the end of the summer Juana was transferred to the Perry Chamber of Commerce Office in Perry, GA. The Chamber of Commerce is closer to her home and convenient for her commute to and from Fort Valley State University where she is currently a Junior majoring in Early Childhood Education. The Chamber's staff applaud Juana's performance each time they communicate with someone from the Middle Georgia Consortium's staff.

Outcomes & Benefits

Juana continues to work for the Chamber through the Middle Georgia Consortium's WIA Program. She continues to earn money to sustain her as she continues to work towards meeting her graduation requirements at Fort Valley State University. Juana said, "I realize that the skills which I have learned and will learn will definitely help me in the future." Juana has become such an integral part of the Chamber that they have listed her on their official stationery as an Intern. Now, that is impressive.
