Synethia Howard's success provides a perfect example of how a Westside Works training program can lead to a career. Childcare has been her passion and she originally pursued a degree in child development at Clark Atlanta University. Synethia enjoys helping children to learn and recognizes that each child learns differently. The Child Development Associate program of the YMCA and Westside Works has taught her about state rules and regulations, the different approaches for teaching various age groups, and mostly to have patience with children and the learning process. The Microsoft Office program was where Synethia began her involvement with Westside Works but she learned that work experience was necessary to get a job once she graduated. The Child Development Associate program provides automatic job training and employment with the YMCA, which has assisted her with taking care of her family. Synethia's goal is to eventually own her own daycare facility so this program has provided her with the first step toward realizing her dream.
