Celebrating Youth Week

May 5, 2021

WorkBC Langley & Maple Ridge are pleased to share the story of Marion, (22), a client and now successful employee in the retail industry.

Marion has had to face challenges and barriers through her time in high school, as well as intermittent work placements after graduating. Described as someone who is constantly eager to learn and willing to challenge herself, she has persevered through the tough times.

Marion found WorkBC and began her journey through its employment services by pairing with a career coach and identifying and addressing some of the challenges she has faced at such a relatively young age.

“We are so proud of Marion for overcoming her barriers and finding success in employment!”

Marion and her career coach worked closely to create a plan towards successful employment, including timelines and goals aimed to assist in achieving her ambitions.

WorkBC Langley & Maple Ridge can happily say that Marion has exceeded expectations and is flourishing in her new role in the retail sector. With continued support from WorkBC, she is confident that this is just the beginning towards a fulfilling career and personal growth.

Congratulations Marion, you deserve it!
