Meet Tracie

Workforce Challenge

Tracie was a senior in high school and was preparing for college. Her family had limited resources and Tracie needed help finding a job that would allow her to earn money and contribute to college expenses.

Workforce Solution

Through the WIA Summer Youth Program, Tracie was placed at Griffin Nursing Home. The experience taught her to be responsible and patient while taking care of others. Additionally, she learned a lot about the medical field, which aligned with her planned area of study in college.

Outcomes & Benefits

Tracie says, "With the money I earned, I helped my mother pay rent, bought clothes for my sister, and I hope to get an apartment when I start college soon. It was an awesome opportunity to be a part of this program."
