Meet Daphne

Workforce Challenge

Daphne is a single mom who had recently moved to Colorado and was trying to get back into the workforce. She came to Workforce Boulder County (WfBC) by way of the Employment First program. The program provides employment counseling, job readiness workshops, GED education, and internships - all aimed at helping clients on food stamps find employment.

Workforce Solution

Daphne worked diligently with the Employment First training team to update her resume and hone her interviewing skills. She was placed in an internship with Boulder County Housing and Human Services' Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP).

Outcomes & Benefits

In her short time on the CCAP team, Daphne has received several Shining Star Awards, which her colleagues nominated her for in recognition of her 'stellar' performance. Her supervisor says, "Daphne has been a wonderful fit for our team. She is excellent with our families, has steadily increased her skill set, and is always interested in what more she can do to better serve our team and the families we serve. She is friendly, positive, helpful, and just an all-around pleasure to supervise."
