He worked full time but had to set a goal for himself to complete this in 6 months or less. He did in fact complete his high school diploma in less than 6 months. He is currently waiting for the COVID-19 pandemic situation to clear when the military will once again be bringing new recruits in.

Tashia Zeno (Staff Member) On behalf of Denise

R3 Program
I lead a Homeless Initiative at my church where we supply CARRE bags with essentials and feed the homeless/less fortunate. I was talking to a young woman by the name of Denise, who is currently homeless and going through a tough time. I spoke to her about connecting with Career Source Tampa Bay and possibly enrolling in some type of training, her eyes filled up with tears and she said, “I am I enrolled in the R3 Program, Monica is my career coach, this program is my only source of income at the moment and if it wasn’t for the program and the financial assistance, I wouldn’t have money to eat.” This moved me immensely I saw the impact this program has to the community we serve, and it came full circle. This program is changing the trajectory of our customer’s lives.

Dear Cynthia,
As you know from January 22 to 24, 2020, I took the Advanced U.S. Immigration Law training that was taught by US immigration where I satisfactorily completed 24 hours of education and training in the U.S. Immigration Law. I am grateful to you and CareerSource for paying me for the training.
As a result of that training in the next days I will register with the federal department of Justice as an immigration attorney. I will register with the Federal Department of Justice as an immigration attorney, and I trust that in near future I will get a job or open my office as an immigration attorney. I will keep you informed of these employment arrangements. I reiterate my thanks for your dedicated attention and professionalism to help integrate into the labor market.

Dear Zoe,
Firstly, I’d like to start by thanking you for your unwavering support, encouragement, and dedication to my case and the thousands of others you have helped and will help achieve their goals and dreams. You personally have helped me overcome the demographic obstacles associated with being a young single mother, a domestic violence survivor, and a recovering addict. The first day I met you, you spoke words of encouragement and throughout the last 25 years, you continued to water those seeds you planted in me. I just want to give back what you gave me, will continue to lead in your footsteps, and pour into the young women who surround me with similar circumstances.
