Meet Jonathon

Workforce Challenge

Jonathon was trying to work and go to school. Due to his parents' income, he wasn't able to receive school grants. However, Jonathon was living on his own and working to pay his own bills. He had a seasonal job, but due to the distance between his job and school, he was unable to continue working. Jonathon visited Michigan Works! Northeast Consortium for tuition assistance.

Workforce Solution

Michigan Works! helped Jonathon with tuition, books and fees for a 9-Week Consumer Energy program, as well as mileage reimbursement, rent while in school and the cost of obtaining a CDL Class A commercial license.

Outcomes & Benefits

Jonathan completed training and was able to increase his wage by 262%. He is excited for his future and says, "I now work for a great company, Consumers Energy, as a Step 1 Apprentice."
