Marcus from Chicago, Illinois

I hope to be a master welder and eventually own a business. Need gear to get started

In order to start my career as a welder, I need welding gear and safety equipment.


I’m Marcus. I’m enrolled in Jane Adams Resource Center (JARC) to change my career, and provide for my family.

My goal is to become a master welder. I plan on joining the union, and eventually opening my own business. I’d also like to use my welding to create art.

I am in need of a full set of welding gear –jacket, boots, gloves, helmet, and safety glasses.

JARC has provided me with the skills I need to advance my career, but most companies require that you have your own equipment to start. I would like to leave this program 100% ready to apply these skills to provide a better future for me and my family.
