Rakeem McCaa Lands Position at Boys/Girls Club

Rakeem McCaa, who was featured in the February 14, 2014 edition of the SWWDB Update newsletter for landing a position as an on-call custodian for the Janesville School District, obtained mainly through his In-School Youth work experience, was once again seeking employment. And once again, he turned to Community Action, which proved to be the correct move.

Whereas his successful completion in November of 2013 of the Community Action WIA In-School Youth program led to the Janesville School position, in September, 2015 Rakeem reached out to Community Action’s WIOA Out-of-School Youth Program for assistance.

When asked why he chose to come back to Community Action, Rakeem said, “Community Action is my first choice when I need help. The staff are more than willing to help you. They are caring, honest, and they really do want you to succeed.”

Shortly after his enrollment in the WIOA program, Rakeem interviewed and was hired at the Boys and Girls Club in Beloit. According to Jaimie Marton, “Rakeem is a very respectful young man that has a positive attitude. Rakeem also possesses a strong work ethic, which is difficult to teach. He has the abilities that we are trying to teach other participants, so they too can be successful. Rakeem’s skills set, work ethic, and commitment will take him far in his life.”
