Way to go ladies!
Jessica came to DCWJC to find a better opportunity. A member of her church, Shiloh Terrace Baptist Church, suggested that she enroll in the Workforce Readiness and Life Skills program. After attending an open house, she registered for classes. Originally, her dream was to become a Medical Assistant. Now, her career goal is to become a registered nurse (RN) and help as many people as she can.
Rosa first encountered DCWCJ in 2017 during a time when she felt lost and in need of direction. That year, she graduated from the DCWJC Workforce Readiness and Life Skills program and has since been on a road of success. She enjoys spending time with her family and helping others work through life's challenges.
Juanita is a lifetime learner who is also pursuing an Associate's degree in Information Technology and plans to become an IT Computer Support Specialist in the future.
