Meet Lance DeLeon

Workforce Challenge:

Lance DeLeon sought employment services from the South Bay One-Stop Business & Career Center – Torrance during his unemployment transition. He had previously participated in the Aero-Flex Pre-Apprenticeship program where he also completed on-the-job work experience.

Workforce Solution:

During the transition of seeking employment, Mr. DeLeon was hired by Northrop Grumman.

Outcome and Benefits:

To make the start of his new career less stressful, he received financial assistance from the One-Stop so he could obtain work supplies, work boots for protection in a manufacturing environment and an alarm clock vibrator to accommodate his hearing impairment. Thus he was able to start his new career without unnecessary financial and performance stress.

“I don’t think I would have been able to take the steps needed to get back into the workforce. I was very nervous to face this process again, but I did it with their help. I applied for the first job he sent me and a few days later – I got the job, I was so happy!"
