Michelle from Chicago, IL

Working on my IT certification. Just need bus passes to make it to class!

I am trying to receive my certification so I can get back into the IT field. A few months of bus passes will ensure I can make it to every class.

My need and situation

I am a in the Center for Changing Lives CompTIA A+ certification program. I am trying to receive my certification so I can get back into the IT field. I hope to use these new skills paired with my existing skills to gain employment.

My goals are to gain employment. Right now my main focus has been finding work, and finding a job will allow me to focus on other interest such as volunteering for non-profits in an IT capacity.

I need assistance with transportation in the form of bus passes so I can be sure to make it to class everyday, without worrying about how I will do that.

Meeting this need will help me because it would guarantee no interruptions with my continued attendance in class. It would be one less issue to continue, and help move me towards my goal of employment.

I have been working with Michelle since the beginning of the year in that time she has been extremely dedicated to the class. she has been extremely resourceful in finding different ways to make sure that she is in class everyday. If she were to receive assistance with transportation it would be a huge relief of stress on her, and help her to better focus in class.
