Dante from Chicago, IL

I'm in training to be a welder, but I need equipment to find a job!

I'm eager to find a job with my new skills, but in order to start work, I need a helmet, jacket, gloves, and glasses.

My need and situation

My name is Dante; I am a current student at Jane Addams Resource Corporation Welding Fast Track. I’m a young aspiring welder trying to learn a skill to contribute to society while progressing in life.

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

I need welding gear for when I start the job search. This includes a welding helmet, a welding jacket and sleeves, welding gloves, and prescribed safety glasses.

Meeting this need will give me the confidence to start a new job as a welder after I am done with my training. It would also put me in a position to be successful in the industry.

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.
