Meet Kimberly

Workforce Challenge

Kimberly was enrolled in the Youth Succeed program to assist with high school graduation needs and CNA training. Kimberly needed financial assistance to pay for CNA training since her high school did not offer this program at no cost. Kimberly also needed support to stay in school. She especially needed help with transportation, since her school required her to travel 30 miles round trip to attend the CNA program Monday through Friday.

Workforce Solution

Youth Succeed assisted with paying for Kimberly's CNA training which included her work tools, scrubs, TB testing, tuition, books, and state board fees. Kimberly also received transportation assistance to travel to and from her school from the program which help her maintain excellent attendance at school.

Outcomes & Benefits

Kimberly successfully completed her CNA training at Ann Rose School of Nursing as well as completed an externship at a local assisted living facility. She went on to pass her CNA state board testing and received her certification in both CNA and First Aid Training. Kimberly now works as a QMAP and CNA at a assisted living facility in her community. She also successfully graduated from Frederick High School and is now planning on starting college in the fall. Congratulations, Kim!
