A youth, Gloria, from Somerset Co. recently completed the 21st  Century Youth program which provides work readiness, academic skills, and work experience to youth with multiple barriers.  Gloria was homeless, had limited work experience, and issues that made it difficult to pursue education or employment. She completed all components of the training and, with WIOA assistance, was hired by Spurwink as a direct support specialist, full-time at $11.50 an hour.   Although she is at a lower wage, this is a fresh start for Gloria and she is doing well at her new job.
