Initially this program was designed to provide candidates with employable skill sets that they have not achieved elsewhere. It has since expanded to serving an array of candidates; career field change, women entering the workforce, former substance abusers, ex-offenders, and youths. It has become ideal for those in the foster care system who are about to be on their own, High school drop outs, and anyone just wanting great employable skill sets. Our programs are recommended by probation and Parole Officers, “NoVA”, KCCRC (Kansas City Correction and Rehabilitation Center), high schools and Employment Offices. We work with many different organizations to attain a sponsor for you as a student.

Hard work, commitment to self, and skills training took FEC member Jeffery Kreisel out of the shelter and into a management position. WTI

Jeffery Kreisel lived at the City Union Mission Christian Life Center, a local shelter for the homeless in Kansas City. Last June, he toured the Warehouseman Training Inc. facility, and decided to invest the time and effort in training. Since finances were a challenge, Jeffery enrolled as a member of the Full Employment Council, where he received financial aid and supportive services through the Tech Hire program, allowing him to enroll in the program. Through the program, Jeffery earned his Certified Warehouseman and Material Handler Certification, OSHA PIT Safety Certification, Operator’s License on Classes I, II and III, as well as his OSHA 10 Hour Safety Course. “Jeffery has an excellent attitude. He is respectful, hardworking, and follows instructions well. He was early every day. Jeffery fully participated in the class and had good input. He was always ready for the morning review and could answer most questions put to him,” said instructor Doran Clevenger. Upon completion of his training, Jeffery went to work through Express Employment at the Smithfield Foods, Kansas City Sausage Company. He began driving a forklift for them, making $15 an hour. Before too long, he put in his application for the second shift lead position. Now, Jeffery makes $18.50 an hour, and has left the homeless shelter behind, living on his own and working a job he enjoys.
