Success Stories

Jenna, a married mother of four, had been unemployed on a long-term basis. She came to Southeast KANSASWORKS seeking assistance with obtaining a career that would help her become more marketable and also allow her to earn a sustainable wage. With our assistance, Jenna was able to enroll in the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) Program. Jenna set her goals, and through hard work and determination, she was able to reach her goal of becoming a LPN. Jenna not only reached her goal, but also graduated with honors and passed her State Boards. After graduation, Jenna was able to put her new license to work and obtained a full-time position as a charge nurse. Jenna is very thankful for the services and funding she received from the WIOA Adult Program. Without this assistance, Jenna would not have had the opportunity to pursue the education she needed to find a long-term sustainable career. We wish Jenna success in her new career!

Jenna’s Story

( WIOA Adult Program )

Gavin is a 19-year old who was frustrated with his job opportunities and uncertain about his career goals. Gavin enrolled in the LifeWorks Program where he participated in career exploration, created a professional resume, learned about in-demand careers, and had the opportunity to practice his interview skills. He also completed a work experience and did such an outstanding job that the worksite created a position for him. Gavin also plans to enroll at the local community college this fall and work toward achieving his long-term career goals. We wish Gavin continued success as he pursues his education.

Gavin’s Story

( LifeWorks Young Adult Program )

As a pregnant unemployed high school graduate, I attended and completed the LifeWorks Workshop. As part of the program I had the opportunity to participate in a work experience program that helped me gain the skills that I would need to find full-time employment. During my work experience, the work site employer offered me a full-time position once I have completed my work experience hours. Congratulations to Whitney on her full-time position!
