With little to no knowledge about computers, Linda arrived at NEW’s Latino Tech-Net (LTN) course. Once she completed our program, she applied and was hired for a job at a local Joann’s Fabrics store.
After starting her job, Linda created several opportunities to apply her computer skills to completing her work projects. This initiative impressed her supervisors, and within just two (2) months after being hired as a temporary employee, Linda earned the position of store manager!
However, she didn’t stop there. Linda also enrolled in classes at Pierce College. Her journey is an example of how NEW’s programs can completely change, not only a person’s situation, but the person herself.
