This never gets old. Gary had a great job interview where he beat out at least four other candidates to get the job at MidwestFence. He's the third welding grad to land a job since last week!

We support our trainees and hope you will, too!
Consider assisting one of our trainees:
Earlier this month, JARC VP Regan Brewer and Senior Director Emily Doherty were invited to an international conference of nonprofits funded by the Chanel Foundation in Paris, France. The theme was “Paving the Road Toward Women’s Empowerment,” and 36 countries were represented. Topics covered cross-sectional approaches to women’s empowerment, impact measurement, and gender transformative programming. During the presentation on access to employment and vocational training, Regan was asked to share about JARC’s approach. “We were able to learn from experts who take diverse approaches to ensuring women’s empowerment through economic opportunity,” Emily said. “It’s been humbling to be with so many amazing women and men working on gender equity issues across the globe,” Regan added. #womeninmanufacturing
