Workforce Success Story Submitted By:

Meet Jason

Workforce Challenge

Jason lived on his own. He supported himself during his senior year in high school by doing odd jobs. He was leaning toward a career in interior design, but had no work experience in that industry and knew that he'd need a college degree and formal training to be successful in that field.

Workforce Solution

Jason participated in a work experience program in Region 6 of Indiana in the summer of 2009. He worked at Lucinda’s Interiors of Randolph County, Indiana, so that he could see if the interior design business was what he really wanted to do after graduation.

Jason also worked the next summer through the Young Hoosier Youth Academy to save up money for college.

Outcomes & Benefits

Jason is now attending Vincennes University in Indiana for Interior Design and working a part-time job. He is on the path to the career he wants.
