Welding Success Story
“October of 2007 to July of 2008, I was in the GRAD program….and I'm living proof the program does work. I got out of prison in 2010 and found work…in the welding field—and I’m thankful for the welding program I was allowed to take while locked up. I graduated and completed cognitive intervention, alcohol abuse, substance abuse, and anger management courses.” I thank you very much.
