Vitaliy from Chicago, IL

Training to work in manufacturing. Boots and a uniform will help me find work!

I'm sharing expenses, but I'll need to pay rent myself soon. JARC has helped me learn machining skills, but jobs require safety equipment before you start.

My need and situation

My name is Vitaly. I am currently enrolled in the CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Program at Jane Addams Resource Corporation. I'm on the path of changing my career, to pursue the dream of getting closer to my goal of working with most advanced technology. At this moment I share housing expenses with my dad, but in two months he will move out and I will be responsible to pay the full amount of rent. I recently received credentials in both CNC Milling and CNC Turning Program operation. I also received an award for student of the month for February.

My goal is to enter into a career as a CNC operator in the machining industry. This will allow me to make adequate income to meet my needs and save for my future. I am ready to work, but I need gear that is required by anyone entering into the CNC industry.

I am in need of steel-toed boots and uniforms . An investment in these items will be an investment in my future success.

Meeting this need will help me because most CNC jobs require you to have steel toed boots and uniforms prior to starting on your first day. Gaining employment in the field of manufacturing will allow me to be more financially stable.

I have known Vitaliy for about 5 months now. I really cannot say enough about Vitaliy's initiative and drive while at JARC. I helped him go thru the process of applying for public assistance; at this moment he is in the final stretch of training and it would be great to see him receive this financial assistance.
