I am a Program Coordinator Intern and have known KC through the welding program, here at Jane Addams Resource Corporation (JARC). The welding program is a 14 week, 350 hour program where trainees learn the fundamentals of Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW or “MIG”) processes that are used in manufacturing. KC on the fast track on finding a job but he needs help in doing so. KC is a hard worker and I want to help him with all the materials he needs for his potential new job. It would be wonderful to see him receive the help!
