Kevin B’s Workforce Training Success Story

“I’ve always had a passion for working with my hands and was never the type of guy to do things the traditional way. I dropped out of school and started working various labor-related jobs. I later obtained my GED and joined the Delaware National Guard where I was able to gain skills in the electric field.  Unfortunately, I started getting in trouble with the law to support my drug habit.”

“After losing a small business and my once prided independence, I joined GROWTH & Eastside Rising’s construction training program. I obtained the NCCER national construction certificate and recently started working at Warren Truss in their manufacturing department. My decision to choose GROWTH has been very rewarding and has changed my life for the better!”

*UPDATE: Kevin is now working for Wilkinson Roofing & Siding, Inc., earning $23 an hour.
