You may know some people who want more stable careers instead of jumping from job to job. But, can they afford what they need to get started?
Whether its a career assessment test or safety equipment for class, people experiencing tough financial times might not be able afford those costs.
Bank of America joined John Wood Community College's effort to prepare people for the right career by donating $5,000 to the College Readiness Program at an event today in Quincy. The money is available to anyone who takes part in this program, and you don't have to be enrolled in the school yet.
"This money will allow us to use to pay for assessments for people who might not be able to afford them or maybe helping them purchase something they need for their job...maybe getting steel-toed shoes or other safety gear for classes."
Anyone interested in the program is encouraged to visit the Heath Center at the JWCC campus on 48th Street or call 217-641-4902.
