Youth Program Participant
(May 2021) A program participant came to ARIZONA@WORK Pinal County's Youth program as a 17 year old HS dropout, without a drivers license and having never been employed. Over the past year and a half, this individual has completed three Work Experiences earning rave reviews from his employers. After attending one of our interview and resume workshops, this individual became gainfully employed, and eventually even passed his driving exam. Early on this program participant had passed four of the five GED tests; math was a challenge but this individual persevered and on the third attempt was able to pass with high scores successfully completing and earning a High School Equivalency (HSE).
