Meet Spencer

Workforce Challenge

Spencer enrolled into the WIOA program to get assistance with obtaining his GED, exploring careers, and finding a meaningful career path. He was stuck in dead-end jobs due to not having his GED. He needed support and mentoring to help him reach this goal.

Workforce Solution

Spencer received vocational guidance, financial assistance for the GED, career exploration, and a paid work experience opportunity. Spencer explained, “I was given the opportunity to intern for the AJC, which has helped me develop my professional self. During my time there, my eyes have opened to the possibility that I might actually be successful in life. Between the one-on-one guidance with my case manager and speaking with the wonderful people here, I truly, truly believe that I will be able to do anything that I set my mind to.”

Outcomes & Benefits

Spencer obtained his GED in December, 2016. He gained job readiness skills needed for the workforce, and valuable work experience through his internship. He is now prepared to attend college or start a career that will help others.
