Meet Morgan

Workforce Challenge

At time of enrollment Morgan was working in retail making $8.00/hr and enlisted in the Air Force Reserves receiving about $1,500/Month. He was pursuing his Bachelor’s degree in Aviation but he was no longer Pell Grant eligible and stated he had a lot of out of pocket expenses associated with his training, and he was having a hard time paying for them since he was also paying his tuition.

Workforce Solution

Morgan got enrolled in WIOA and VWIP and received tuition assistance from WIOA while VWIP assisted with payment for flying hours so he can earn the required fly hours to obtain his pilot license.

Outcomes & Benefits

Morgan completed his training and secured a position as Flight Operations Manager making $80,000/yr

While Morgan was already working on his goal, he definitely was able to attain it much sooner with the assistance of WIOA and VWIP. His case exemplifies the impact WIOA can have in some individuals, specially our Veterans.
