Success Story of
Janee Williams

Janee Williams – Knowledge Equals Youth Success (KEYS) Program at Employ Prince George's – Success Story – Workforce Development and Adult Learning. Janee Williams, KEYS graduate, mother, devoted daughter, and business owner is currently thriving despite COVID-19.

She has not let the uncertainties of the pandemic stop her from pursuing and achieving her personal or professional goals. Prior to enrolling in the KEYS Program, Janee faced many obstacles to maintaining and providing a comfortable environment for herself and her three-year-old son, Logan. Janee recounts her greatest struggle prior to joining and completing the KEYS Program was financial stability.

Her determination to “thrive not survive” led Janee to enroll in the KEYS Program and stay committed to the eight-week in-house Occupational Skills Training – even excelling at her internship with the City of Mt. Rainier.

After interning for 10 weeks with the city of Mr. Rainer as an Administrative Assistant, Janee’s reporting supervisor fought to have her brought on as full-time staff. She interviewed and accepted an offer from the City of Mt. Rainier for a full-time position with benefits starting at $20/hr. Janee currently serves as Business Development Associate and City Hall Administrative Associate.

Success Story of
Christina Carter

The pandemic of 2020 left me as an 30 year old unemployed mom of 2 girls . With 10 years of experience in healthcare but no certifications or licenses.

I had been employed all of my adult life with references from past employers and supervisors. During the pandemic I watched business after business close down. Realizing all I had to vouch for me was my experience & references I decided that it was time to rethink my career & earn a certificate with my name on it that couldn’t be taken away from me. I went online to PGCC & searched the classes they offered within their Workforce Development program.I settled on the Community Health Worker course. The CHW course was work that I already do and work that I am passionate about. I met Ms. Cromer a career consultant who guided & motivated me along the way from registration, funding and being prepared for training . I completed the course in 3 months & passed my CHW exam earning my certification & making me a Certified Community Health Worker in the state of Maryland . I have already secured employment with a non profit agency that aligns with my passion. I am so grateful for this opportunity to have a tangible certification with my name on it in the midst of these unprecedented times. I am able to provide for my family & do what I love to do . After completing the CHW course I was empowered to pursue my degree in Sociology and have already enrolled in classes for this spring at PGCC. It’s true that we can’t change the world or what’s happening around us but we can change the role we play in the world.

Sincerely Christina Carter

As a recipient of the Rapid Re-Employment Grant, I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how impactful the grant has been for our business. The grant has enabled us to hire 2 individuals that will not only provide much needed support for our operations, but also be a part of the groundwork for our strategy to grow our business in Prince George’s County.

Mr. Austin, were it not for your tireless efforts and dedication and Sandra Flowe, and the rest of your team, this opportunity would not have been possible for us. Because of you and your team, we are ending the year in a better and stronger position than we might have imagined. As a business owner, I know that this was a team effort headed up by great leadership. I know that you all put in a lot of late nights and weekends to get this done. I could tell because of how responsive you were to my questions, and how quickly the entire program was administered. It was a heavy lift I know, but you all came through with flying colors.

I was excited to be able to extend employment to 2 Prince Georgians, and trust me, they were excited to become a part of our now growing company. This grant has been an amazing lift for our company, and we will not forget how you, your team, and Employ Prince George’s made a difference and a significant impact on our business!
