Ava left Eastern Europe for the United States with the hope for a better life for her and her child.
It wasn’t easy
After settling in the Minneapolis area, she found it hard to land a good job. The only jobs she could find paid minimum-wage and involved low skill work. This work couldn’t come close to letting her be self-sufficient, and they didn’t offer her any prospects for the future. She knew she needed a career, but she also needed guidance on how to get one.
A little help from her friends
Ava began working with LifeTrack’s Employment Services. After speaking with an employment coach, completing an assessment of her talents and skills, and working with mentors, she decided to learn to enter commercial trucking.
She enrolled in the Lifetrack’s Pathways to Prosperity Commercial Trucking Program. Heavy Metal Truck Training works with Lifetrack, providing class A commercial driver’s training to their clients.
Excellent training and hard work paid off
Ava completed one of HMTT’s driver’s courses and continued to take financial literacy and employment courses at LifeTrack. After four months of work and study, she obtained her class A commercial driver’s license.
And, she did it on her first try.
Using the employment skills she learned, she landed her first driver’s job with DHL at $21 an hour! This is a big step up from the minimum wage jobs she did when she arrived in the United States.
Ava is realizing her American dream because of her hard work, determination, and the help she received from LifeTrack and Heavy Metal Truck Training.
