Dante from Chicago, IL

I'm ready to be a welder; a car down payment will let me get to jobs!

I have equipment and a welding certification. Now I just need help w/ a car down payment so that I can travel to job sites and pay off the car myself.


My Name is Dante, I am currently a student at Jane Addams Resource Corporation's welding program. I recently have received the American Welding Society (AWS) certificate.

My goal is to become a full-time welder and to maintain a career in manufacturing to become self-sufficient.

In order to meet that goal, I need a car to make it to and from Job sites all across the city with my welding tools. These funds will help pay for a down payment, after which I can pay with the money I make from working.

Meeting this need will remove the last barrier in my way to beginning a lifelong career in the trades.

Thank you for helping Dante fund this need.

I have known Dante for about 5 months now. I really cannot say enough about Dante's initiative, dependability, and drive while at JARC. It would be great to see him receive this financial assistance.
