Peter from Chicago, Illinois

With a laptop & tuition, I can get certified teaching English as a foreign language!

I've found stability after living homeless; now I'm looking to employment. With help I can get a career teaching and traveling-- two lifelong dreams.

Overview

I am a 55-year-old Chicago resident. I've had some employment issues and was homeless for 10 years. I am now stably housed and want to work on my employment goals.

My goals are to gain my Teaching English as a Foreign Language certificate. I have always wanted to travel and teach English and this license will allow me to do both.

I need to raise money to pay for the classes needed to gain the Teaching English as a Foreign Language certificate. I also need to buy a laptop in order to take the classes.

Meeting this need will help me because it will help me reach financial freedom, give me the ability to travel, and start me on the path to a fulfilling career.
