Tea from Chicago, IL

Getting back on my feet. Bus passes to & from class will let me start a career in IT.

Having public transportation to and from classes is the one thing that will help me on my path towards a new career.


I am 42-years-old, and I have worked in the financial tax industry since 2003. I have been out of work for the past three years, and i am looking to reestablish myself in the professional field through Information Technology training.

My goal is to attend a CompTIA A+ certification training to establish myself in today's competitive job market.

My need is for funding in regards to public transportation to and from classes. This would ensure that I can attend class everyday, and that I am successful in the training program and achieving my final goal of employment.

Meeting this need will help me achieve my goal of steady employment. And this all starts with being able to attend class ever day, and completing the course successfully.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Tea fund this need.
