Kenneth's Success Story

As the provider for a wife with several health issues, a brother with physical and mental disabilities, and a young daughter preparing to begin her college career, Kenneth’s job loss in 2010 was a challenge for his family.

Kenneth contacted Lifetrack interested in the welding classes and certifications offered through RENEW, a program providing access to sustainable career pathways, while ensuring that area businesses have access to a well-trained workforce.

After completing the program, Kenneth still found challenges finding a permanent job but worked closely with his Lifetrack Resources’ job counselor to pursue potential employment opportunities while working temporary jobs.

Today, Kenneth has secured a stable, permanent job due to his patience and determination to support his family.
