Workforce Investment Solutions success is dependent upon our customers success.
We are proud of the following examples of a few of our success stories.
“Workforce more than exceeded my expectations. Not only did they assist in the cost of tuition and books, but they also helped to cover the cost of daycare, the cost of gas to and from school, and any supplies and uniforms that were required for school as well. Not only did this assistance make it possible for me to continue with my education, but it also helped to give my daughter and I somewhat of a normal life back while I completed the program as well.”
“I went to MTI Tech School for my medical assistant and graduated in December of 2019 even when I felt like giving up the WIOA program and my family was there to motivate me and keep me going and I really appreciate them for that I honestly don’t think I would’ve made it this far without the program. I would highly recommend the program to anyone. No it’s not easy but anybody can make it through it.”
“I sought out Workforce Investments to help me pay for my degree. Workforce Investments gave me the peace of mind that my tuition and supplies for the program were paid for. Workforce made getting my degree and the best start to my career possible!!”
“Henry says that Workforce Investment Solutions means HOPE, because that’s what it gave him at a time where he wasn’t sure what was ahead for his future. The emotional support and encouragement from his Career Planner always came at a time when he needed it most and helped him with all that life threw at him. With the assistance from Workforce Investment Solutions, he now has skills for a successful career and is able to earn a self sufficient wage.”
“Aida applied for Workforce Investment Solutions services, was selected and enrolled in the Accelerated Training in Manufacturing (ATIM) program and subsequently the NEG Manufacturing Sector Based training grant. Aida was able to take training courses including the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC) certificates, OHSA 30, numerous CNC courses, welding courses, and other manufacturing engineering courses at Richland Community College. Aida is on track to complete her Engineering Tech Degree in December 2017 and is thankful for the assistance she received from Workforce Investment Solutions.”
“In May 2016, Phillip was able to obtain employment as draftsman/junior project engineer at Green Valley Manufacturing, Inc, Mt. Zion, IL. Workforce Investment Solutions worked with Green Valley’s plant manager to create an On-The-Job Training (OJT) contract where Phillip would learn new training skills every 60 days for the next six months. The OJT program was structured where training goals were detailed for the six months. Every two months, when new skills were obtained, there was a monetary raise.”
“Workforce Investment Solutions means that I have a support system – financially, educationally, emotionally – to be successful in my career field. Workforce Investment Solutions allowed me to be free of the financial barrier regarding books, uniforms, supplies, etc.”
