Is there a work program or money for training convicted felons that were not offered any education while in prison?
Try truck driving, it is possible to do local runs and not go out of state because of your parole. Some truck driving companies will sponsor you and pay for your classes. You are even guaranteed a job (in most cases) after completion of your truck driving classes. I have noticed that some truck driving classes will even pay you $400.00 while training. Truck drivers make good money. If you do not want to drive Trailer Tractor Trucks there are other options available. I have a female friend that has a CDL license and she drives the city bus and makes $20.00 an hour. I really do realize how hard it is to get a job. Keep trying and don't get discouraged. The legal system is not always right. In most cases one conviction can be a lifetime sentence and hold you back for for rest of your life -even if you change your life and prove it. Most cases there is no forgiveness. Stay motivated. If Jesus was alive he would have been charged with a felony just like you and have difficulties finding a job just like you.
If you are in the Chattanooga, Tenn. Area, try Chattanooga Endeavors, Inc., 310 E. 8th St.,. Almost any Vocational/Technical school will help you get into their training/class programs.
the unemployment offices have a program called WIA it helps u get the grants and loans to go to school or get a cdl
There are work programs and you should check with your local Department of Employment for your county and state.
