Meet Dustin

Workforce Challenge

Dustin was released from Larned Juvenile Correctional Facility and needed to re-start his life outside of the Correctional Facility.

Workforce Solution

We assisted him with Supportive Services as well as emotional support and became part of his support system.

Outcomes & Benefits

Dustin will be graduating from Barton Community College in May 2013. During the Fall 2012 semester he received 4 A's and 1 B. Dustin has been asked to join the honor society and will be able to graduate with honors in May. He did take classes that were provided through WIA funds while incarcerated in LJCF. This allowed him to only need one year to graduate with his Associate's Degree. Dustin will transfer to another state school and will continue his education until he has his BBA.
