Meet Enrique

Workforce Challenge

Enrique came into the Workforce Center with his mother in November 2014. At that time he was not going to school and was interested in obtaining his GED. He was only 16 years old and wasn't turning 17 until the next February. By law he is not able to enroll into a GED program until he is 17 without an approved GED waiver.

Workforce Solution

His case manager registered Enrique with the Adams County Workforce & Business Center and provided him with the information on how to apply for the GED waiver. After a few weeks of waiting, Enrique's mother informed the Adams County Workforce & Business Center that his waiver wasn't approved, and he would need to come back in once he turned 17 so that he could be enrolled in the GED program and be provided with all of the services that the Youth Program can help with.

Outcomes & Benefits

Once he turned 17, Enrique's case manager called him to completed his intake appointment and he was enrolled in the Youth Program on within just a few weeks. He is on his way to completing his GED pre-tests and hopefully he will be successful in obtaining his GED.
