Jennifer Ibanez is all smiles after receiving her OSHA 10 certificate
Jennifer Ibanez graduated high school in 2014 without a plan for the future. With a failed attempt at community college and unable to find a stable job, Ibanez was at a crossroad in her life. She felt unproductive and as if her life was passing by without getting closer to her goals.
She decided to enroll in the YouthBuild program in June 2015 and since has a newfound outlook on life. Jennifer will receive her Home Builders Institute Pre-Apprenticeship Training Certificate in December and has earned several certifications since starting the program. Her success at YouthBuild has motivated her into registering at Los Angeles Mission College and is currently taking two classes this semester. She has yet to pick a major, but she knows she is in the right path to make all her educational dreams come true.
