Workforce Challenge

Samantha came to the WIOA youth program not attending school and a single parent. She felt she needed some support and guidance to get an education.

Workforce Solution

Samantha decided to get back in school because she wanted to finish high school and wanted to be a role model for her daughter. She enrolled into Gateway to College and attended for a year. Samantha had some health issues and for a short time was not attending school. Gateway to College became hard for Samantha to attend and she changed schools and started at Pathways. WIOA youth program was able to provide transportation assistance and also pay school fees that Samantha could not pay herself.

Outcomes & Benefits

Samantha worked very hard at Pathways and graduated in 12/2015. She is pregnant with her second child and due in May 2016. Samantha is still interested in continuing her education and is looking forward to enrolling into post secondary for nursing in Fall 2016.
