Below are just a few of the many success stories. We encourage you to stop by the school, meet our students and hear the stories first-hand.
Graduating Today and Already have a Job
As I was getting closer to parole. I wrote a letter asking about the program. When I go out COVID hit, classes were suspended. But when I heard I was accepted into the program, it meant a lot to me. Now I'm graduating today and have already been blessed with a welding job and can support my two sons.
ReIGNITE Hope Supports You All Along the Way
I want to thank everyone associated with the program. Their goal is to get everyone a job once they graduate from the program. Some have already got jobs without a certification. Today is certification day. A lot people were nervous but there was a really good team to support you. Everyone received their certifications.
A Moment of Clarity
In 1997, my twin brother was shot and killed. One of my close friends died in my arms. When I was shot three times, I thought to myself, "I need to turn my life around." From the time I met the instructor, I got a good vibe. He helped me with my temper, lack of patience and taught me to be humble. I now have a great paying job and the future is bright.
What a Veteran Has to Say
I was in the military, homeless, just out of prison and had few friends. I heard about ReIGNITE Hope at my church. Jami told me about the new Veterans class they were starting. It was just what I needed. I enjoyed welding so much, I never wanted to go home. Now I'm anxious to see how my future will unfold.
