Robert from Tucson, AZ

Single father going to school. A laptop will allow me to complete my job training.

My goal is to earn my Electrical Utility Technology Certificate. I need a laptop to complete my coursework and to begin applying for jobs.

My need and situation

I am a 34-year-old student and single dad. I currently work full time, but decided to go back to school to earn a degree to get a better job to provide for my daughter. I am now enrolled in the Get Into Energy Program.

My goals are to earn my Electrical Utility Technology Certificate and to gain employment with a stable company that provides good benefits. I would also like to own my own house and to help my daughter pay for college.

I need a laptop to complete my coursework and to begin applying for jobs. The laptop will allow me to study from home and to not have to drag my daughter to the library, so that I can study.

Meeting this need will help me because I can complete the program and hopefully get a better-paying job and provide for my daughter. I have a lot of work experience in this field, but I need a degree to move up in to the better paying jobs. Plus, it will help me set an example to my daughter about the importance of an education.

I have know Robert for one year as his program advisor for the Get Into Energy Program. He has so much work experience, but is lacking a degree. Completing this program will help him get a better job with benefits and will help him better provide for his daughter. He is such a hard worker and does everything to make sure his daughter has a good life. I am proud of him for going back to school.
