Jennifer West, Youth Program
Jennifer West is a 22-year-old Out of School Youth from Montgomery County. She lives with her mother and helps her as much as she can. Jennifer was enrolled in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Youth Program in October 2018 because she needed assistance to attend Adult Education classes and obtain her GED. Jennifer has worked very hard and so far has passed 3 out of the 4 parts of the GED Exam. She completed Occupational Skills Certification and plans to enroll in college to pursue a degree as a Pharmacy Technician once she obtains her GED. We are so proud of Jennifer and all she has done to achieve her goals!
Jennifer says, “I have enjoyed working with the WIOA program very much. It has taught me many things such as learning to be responsible with my money. The program has given me hope that I will get into college.”
