Jerome came to the Urban League as part of his search for better career opportunities. He completed the Foundations for the Trades Academy, a partnership with the Workforce Development Board, City of Madison, Operation Fresh Start, and others. Within weeks of completing his training, he was hired by H&H HVAC.
“This is my life now. I have a career. I’m an indentured apprentice in the sheet metal union. It fills me with pride to say it.”
$25/week or $1,200/year will provide a youth like Ariam with their first work experience and build skills that will benefit them for a lifetime.
Ariam came to the Urban League determined to excel in her academics and ensure she was ready for college and career. She was matched with an academic tutor through the Schools of Hope Program and participated in after school college and career exploration programming and a summer internship through the Careers program.
“The Urban League is helping me reach my education and career goals by teaching me career and university ready tips. I’ve been prepared as if I’m going to college tomorrow and they also have helped me become more prepared for class and school right now.”
