WIOA assistance helps single, working mom graduate from JALC with high grades.

Career Specialist Shaun Drue reports on her customer. “Megan enrolled at Man-Tra-Con to receive WIOA training assistance in July 2021. She needed help to pay for her tuition, fees, books, supplies, and transportation, including her cap and gown for graduation. Megan also needed career and employment guidance. We provided WIOA employment and training services to her while she was enrolled in the program,” Shaun explains.

WIOA training assistance helps Elle transition from unemployed, single mom to a Registered Nurse.

Intake Coordinator Jo Dene Kern reports on her customer. “Elle’s educational journey to become a Registered Nurse began when she visited Man-Tra-Con for training assistance in September 2017. At the time, she was 23 years old, unemployed, a single mom to a 3-year-old son, and 100 miles away from family. With WIOA training assistance, she enrolled in the spring 2018 semester at John A. Logan College (JALC) to earn pre-requisite credits toward the Nursing program,” Jo Dene explains.
