Junior from Chicago, Illinois

Ready to apply for a job in manufacturing! I need steel-toed boots & a metrology kit.

If I can obtain these tools, I hope to utilize them in a lifelong, secure career as a CNC operator.


I am a student at Jane Addams Resource Corporation currently learning to program, set up, and operate a Computer Numerical Control machine.

My goals are to finish school and obtain my certifications in CNC so I can move forward with my career. When I was laid off from my last position after falling ill, my livelihood was greatly affected. I had a hard time securing employment without a more specialized skill set. That is where JARC came in.

Now I am almost ready to apply for jobs in the manufacturing field, but I could use a pair of steel-toed boots to protect my feet and a metrology kit to help me measure my parts. Tools like these make me standout and look professional to a company who may be looking to hire me.

Meeting this need would certainly help me on my path back to stability. It is also vital for landing a great job in manufacturing and will continue to help me be successful in my career. If I can obtain these tools, I hope to utilize them in a lifelong, secure career as a CNC operator.

Validated by Mallory from Jane Addams Resource Corporation (What does this mean?)

After being laid off, Junior made an important decision to apply for a JARC manufacturing training and advance his employment skills. Over the last five months, he has picked up the CNC technical skills with ease! He is a natural machinist. On top of that, he is a hardworking and independent student. With the right tools, I know Junior will snag a well paying job and soon be back in the swing of things!
