Bus passes will help me make it to job interviews and obtain full-time work.

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.
