Meet Nayyar Gill
Hawthorne resident Nayyar Gill was referred to the South Bay One-Stop Center in 2020 through the Transitional Subsidized Employment (TSE) program. As a single parent on public assistance, she faced many challenges associated with long-term unemployment.
Nayyar completed employment preparation workshops in the Blueprint for Workplace Success program and entered a paid work experience assignment with Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA).
Outcome and Benefits:
In August 2021, Nayyer was offered a full-time position with LAWA as a wheelchair agent. She has made a successful transition to employment and continues to gain valuable workplace skills.
"Thank you for giving me this opportunity. The TSE program has been life changing and I want to encourage others not to give up - opportunities are out there when you find the right support!"
