Paul Sees Workshops For Warriors’ Certifications as Passport to Successful Career

February 25, 2016 - Paul is Head of Machinery for WFW Industries, the social entrepreneurship machine and fabrication shop running in the Workshops for Warriors’ facility. He is a veteran of the United States Marines and alum of Workshops for Warriors.

When he was transitioning into civilian life, Paul was lucky enough to have heard about our program.

“I heard about it through another Machinist in the Marine Corps (Charlie M.). We connected through TAP (Transition Assistance Program) classes. He told me about the program then we came down to Workshops for Warriors to see what it was about. I was sold on the idea when Hernán told me what he wanted to accomplish.”

Paul now has over 30 certificates from Workshops for Warriors and receives job offers on the regular. Paul is thankful for the reliable life that the training and certification program has provided him with.

“I am now able, with confidence, to tell everyone I know that I am employable anywhere in the United States. Workshops for Warriors made the transition from the military to civilian life flawless. I am able to afford a house and start to raise a family at the age of 25 in Southern California.”
