Bob was once a struggling returning citizen who suffered from abuse and depression. When Bob came back to the Flint community after being away, he, like so many others, was not afforded the opportunities to be successful that he deserved. When Bob came to MADE, we immediately recognized his potential as he excelled in our Becoming MADE life skills program. Thanks to our partnership with GST Michigan Works, Bob received a sponsorship along with other wrap-around services to support him while he participated in the MADE Life skill’s program as he became ready to secure and maintain full-time employment.
Bob completed the MADE Institute 6-week truck driving program in November 2019 and started working for a local Michigan commercial driving company right after. In less than 6-months, Bob went from struggling to avoid recidivism to earning $16.00 with a career with endless opportunity. Bob couldn’t be happier with his new found opportunities, “MADE gave me the opportunity to grow…the sponsorship from GST Michigan Works covered the training cost and certification that I otherwise would not have gotten.“
