Workforce Success Story Submitted By:
Workforce Alliance of South Central Kansas


Workforce Challenge

Tuan was a senior in high school with no work history and few resources to attend college. No one in his family had attended college and he knew nothing about the admissions process, making college intimidating.

Workforce Solution

Youth Program staff eliminated Tuan's fear of enrolling in college and coached him through the enrollment and financial aid process at Butler Community College. Feeling more confident, Tuan later transferred to Wichita State University and participated in the college’s Co-Op program, working for a large aviation manufacturing company while attending school.

Outcomes & Benefits

Tuan graduated with an engineering degree and was hired by a local company earning $50,000 per year.
