Meet Brittany

Workforce Challenge

Brittany had a career goal of becoming a nurse, but lacked the financial resources to even think about enrolling in college.

Workforce Solution

Brittany visited the Louisiana Workforce Commission office in Baton Rouge and was qualified for the WIA Youth Program. She applied for enrollment at Our Lady of the Lake College in the Associate of Nursing program. Through WIA, her books, uniforms, school supplies and tuition would be covered.

Outcomes & Benefits

WIA funding enabled Brittany to pursue her goals. She is extremely grateful to be attending Our Lady of the Lake College and studying nursing. "This program will always be a part of me. I sincerely hope it will be around for future students like me who need help financially to attain a professional degree to better help themselves and their community," said Brittany. "The WIA program has been a major blessing because it helped me accomplish my career goal of becoming a nurse."
