Student Success Story
Submitted By: Riverside County Office of Education CTE
Yury was still high school when a teacher recommended that she explore career opportunities available through the School of Career Education.
Yury had always wanted to work as a Dental Hygienist, and the SCE’s Dental Assisting program was a good fit for her. She was uncertain about how she would finance the classes, but the enrollment specialist helped her arrange a financial plan. “I’ve received a lot of ‘one on one’ attention and support to help me get through this program,” shared Yury. The program included placement in an internship with a local dental office to help Yury gain hands-on experience.
After completing her internship, Yury was thrilled to be hired by her internship employer. “I feel excited about my career!” she said. “I feel successful now, and I have my foot in the door to my dream career.”
