Meet Darya

Workforce Challenge

Darya was seeking support from the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Youth Succeed to finish high school. She is from Russia, has only lived in the United States for six years, and English is not her first language.

Workforce Solution

The WIA Youth Succeed Program was able to provide transportation assistance and provided financial support so Darya could complete International Baccalaureate exams which cost over $600.

Outcomes & Benefits

Darya was able to complete all her credit requirements and graduated from a Denver-area high school in May 2015. Her next goal is to enroll in and attend CU Boulder.
