Andre learned about the Workforce Investment Board from a friend who knew he was struggling financially and having a difficult time finding employment.

The Workforce Investment Board assisted Andre with job searching at the West Valley America’s Job Center of California, which helped him gain employment. Once he started his job at Orkin he was also given assistance with travel until he received his first paycheck.

Andre said that without the Workforce Investment Board he would not have a job, or have been able to get to and from that job. He commented, “This assistance changed my life.”
