Workforce Challenge

Mark was unemployed about a year before coming to the workforce center to inquire about training. He had applied at many different places but it was always a dead end for him due to his lack of skills.

Workforce Solution

Mark has always tinkered with cars and has a shop in his garage. He has always wanted to be a certified mechanic. Mark was approved to receive training through the auto mechanics program and although he lived almost an hour away he attended every day and got a 4.0 average. Even though he experienced personal circumstances that put tremendous stress on him, he continued to attend every day and maintained a 4.0.

Outcomes & Benefits

Mark completed the Auto Mechanics program and opened up a shop of his own. As an entrepreneur, he is doing extremely well and already has one employee working for his company. He also has a used car business on the same lot as his auto repair business.
