“This is a growing pilot program and part of The National Council’s Reimagining Communities infrastructure. All people need to have the opportunity of employment that provides competitive wages to provide a quality life for themselves, families, and communities.” – Sashi James, Director of Reimagining Communities, The National Council.
Before the start of the program, there are three listening sessions at 5:30 PM:

Community members will learn more about the pre-CDL course during the listening sessions. Anyone interested is encouraged to join. For information, visit www.reimaginingcommunities.us.
With the high demand for qualified truck drivers, this is a valuable opportunity for community members, including those formerly incarcerated, looking to jumpstart their careers in this growing field.
Designed by formerly incarcerated women, the Reimagining Communities infrastructure works to end the incarceration of women and girls and provide vital resources to communities to combat the transgressions that lead to incarceration.
