Emily met with career advisor, Ali Hill, in August 2017. As a young, under-employed High School graduate wanting a new career, Emily was seeking assistance with attending a local community college to obtain a Nursing Degree.  

Emily participated in detailed career advising and assessments to ensure this education path was a good fit. Once a career plan was in place, and agreed upon by both Emily and her career advisor, Emily was enrolled into the Training Assistance Service as part of the Out of School Youth Program at the KCEOC KY Career Center Jobsight.

Emily received tuition assistance along with assistance with the cost of required books and supplies. She successfully completed her first year at the Somerset KCTCS Laurel Campus and is scheduled to enter her second year of college in August 2018. She will continue to receive assistance and monthly guidance from her career advisor as part of the program.
