Raymond, Manny & Amir
This triple Success Story highlights three CareerFORCE Youth Program participants – Raymond Caban, Manny Martinez, and Amir Alford. In fall 2019, these young men started internships with the Housing Association & Development Corporation. HADC is a community organization that provides job training for young adults after high school through the construction of high quality, affordable housing in the Jordan Heights neighborhood of Allentown.
During the internship period, an experienced carpenter taught them the basics of home remodeling and they learned more about the construction industry as a potential career field. At the same time, more doors were opening to exciting opportunities – Raymond was able to get his driver’s license and start ESL classes!
After successfully completing the internship, all three men were offered full time on-the-job training (OJT) roles as team leads, allowing them to enhance their construction skills and help train new employees in the future! They have been working for HADC since January 2020 and speak very highly of the organization and the work they do.
Manny says, “This job has helped me get on the right track. I’m working on making a better life for my community and my family.”
