Working Hard Is Nice!
“I now have the skills I need to work for many different companies.”
I was working at a low paying job and needed help to improve my life and that of my family. So I enrolled in the Deseret Industries training program at the LDS Humanitarian Center. DI is dedicated to helping a lot of people, just like me, improve their lives through job training and technical certification programs.
At the Humanitarian Center, I not only learned important job skills, but I was trained in warehouse standards and on forklifts. I practiced maneuvering the forklift to lift big boxes and to clamp big and little bales. I learned to load trucks and containers. I worked hard. Eventually, with the expert training I received and the hands-on experience, I became certified. I now have the skills I need to work for many different companies.
The staff at the Humanitarian Center helped in other ways as well. During my training, my wife lost her job. They helped direct her to another job. When daycare for our little daughter was too expensive, my job coach helped us find a good place for her to go, where she would be safe and well-cared for.
The Humanitarian Center is good. They paid for my training and for my certification. Now that I am certified and experienced in operating a forklift, I have doubled my salary. My new job allows me to work a daytime shift, so I can spend more time with my family. Working hard is nice!
