We have multiple workforce wins for the month of December, from the JLL facilities management trainees to individual hires; but we want to highlight one of our most significant wins — Daniel Anderson!
Daniel was recruited into the street team by Dr. Kimberly C. Ellis and then ushered into the APRI “Breaking the Chains of Poverty” Program, which introduces trainees to certifications, the energy trades and some life skills. He broke a record as one of the highest scorers on the entrance exam and entered the program. Upon graduation, trainees have the opportunity to apply for apprentices with skilled tradesmen.
Daniel was on his way to apply for an apprenticeship but we directed him to a company that had an immediate need to train someone just like him for a construction management apprenticeship with Rycon. He sent in his new resume with his certifications, interviewed, got the job and began December 6, 2021. He waved goodbye to his former job and is beginning his career with no school debt!
Congratulations, Daniel! We’re so proud of you!
