I'm ready to put my education to use. Need bus passes to travel to job interviews!

Weekly bus passes would allow me to attend class, attend an internship, and show up well-dressed and on-time for job interviews and obtain work.

My need and situation

I'll be 57 in July and I'm currently staying at a safe and comfortable shelter while enrolled in a business support services training program. I am committed to bringing my typing, Microsoft, Excel, and writing skills up to the speed of my brain in the very near future.

I want to complete my class, sharpen my admin skills and get a job at a company that I like and that values the fact that I'm a hard-worker with a great sense of humor.

I need to purchase weekly, $28 bus passes to complete my class and to travel to job interviews--these CTA passes offer unlimited fairs for the week and would allow me to attend class, attend an internship, and show up well-dressed and on-time (and not sweaty from walking!) for job interviews!

Meeting this need will help me because I'm hard-working and committed to completing my training program and ultimately finding a great job.

I have been working with Lesli for the past 8 weeks in class. She is intelligent, delightful and dedicated. I can't recommend her highly enough.
