Nine individuals graduated from the latest cohort of our Earn + Learn Forklift / Hi-Lo training and they are already starting work or interviewing for good-paying jobs. The graduation event was last night. This cohort completed the four-week work-readiness part of the program in Brightmoor through our partnership with Mission City. There, they improved their math, reading and computer skills, and earned OSHA and Customer Service certifications. The cohort then completed the one-week Forklift / Hi-Lo Training at the Detroit Training Center.
“It’s very exciting to see most of the participants gaining employment even before they graduated,” said Mac Elabed, Senior Manager of Workforce & Federal Projects at Southwest Solutions. “This shows the great demand for the training program. We’re honored to be a small part of graduates’ success as they move forward and achieve their goals.”
