Michael from Chicago, IL

I've earned my certification in metalworking. I need essential tools to begin work!

In order to get the job I've trained hard for, I need a metrology kit, proper work clothes, steel-toed boots and bus fare.


I am a 25-year-old student in the JARC CNC program. I am a highly organized and detail-oriented individual. After learning what CNC is all about, I am developing a passion for it.

Now that I have received my NIMS Milling Certification, I am more desirable to employers. My next goal is to obtain employment at one of the top manufacturing companies in the state.

Unfortunately, I have been having trouble finding work due to my lack of the right tools and experience. I used to be a student at UIC, but then needed to take care of my father who was sick with cancer. So to be able to get a job in CNC I need a metrology kit, proper work clothes, steel toed boots and bus fare.

Meeting this need will help me because it would allow me to focus more on finding a job rather than stressing about the items I need once hired.

Michael is a very bright student with true leadership abilities! He has excelled in the program quickly and helps other students each day on their mission to conquer CNC machining. Michael has always been extremely reliable, while keeping a positive attitude no matter the struggle. After watching him put in months of hard work and dedication, I have no doubt that he is going to thrive in his career. He just needs a little extra assistance to help him get to work!
