Saturday was our SECOND opportunity to serve 20+ Justice Impacted families in our local OKC community and what another incredible day it was. The weather was perfect! Two of our local Employer Recruiters, with MD Building Products and Locke Supply stopped in for the "hands on" Portion of our Forklift Operator Familiarization School, for in person recruiting of our qualified students! Urban League of OKC works with each non-violent offender prior to the class to update their resume, providing "mock interviewing" and career coaching. They also supply free transportation to and from their OKC location to our Medley Customer Experience and Training Center through their Workforce and Career Development Program, as well as gift card to help purchase work boots to each student upon completion of the course.
"This was by far the MOST HUMBLE AND APPRECIATIVE group of people we have ever served… and our phones have been blowing up all weekend with calls and texts of appreciation. This morning we’ve been fielding calls and viewing videos from one participant that was selected amongst his peers to drive a forklift TODAY (2 days after being trained) Our hearts and eyes are SO FULL!”
Taryn Bradley, Medley Equipment Company Training and Development Facilitator
