Kenneth from Chicago, Illinois

I'm training for a new career. 1 car repair will help me land a job.

I need to repair my vehicle in preparation for a welding position out of state as I begin a new career in manufacturing.

My need and situation

I began in a program at JARC to increase my reading and math level. After a couple months of hard work, I successfully completed the requirements and formally entered the Welding program, where I have been for the last three months. I have received the American Welding Society (AWS) certificate along with a completed OSHA training.

As I near the completion of the program, I have applied to manufacturing firms outside of Chicago in order to fulfill my lifelong dream of career development.

I need to repair my vehicle in preparation for a welding position out of state as I begin a new career in manufacturing.

Meeting this need will help me because as I start over, it will serve as a reliable means of transportation to attend interviews. In addition, the repair of my car will assist me in the process of relocation, transport me to and from work, and enable me to get around for necessities. Having a functional vehicle will enable me to focus on my career and assist me in relocating to stable housing for my future.

Ken has always been attentive in my digital and financial literacy classes. In addition to always being on time, he has a deep passion for learning and has become a leader in the classroom. He is so close to getting the position in Indiana and all he needs is for his car to be repaired so he can relocate. Ken has always been so honest and clear about what he’s looking for, and it would be great to see him receive this support.
