Are you looking for employment in the security or medical field (CNA) but can’t afford the training or other expenses? Well, we here at No Excuses Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) public charitable Illinois nonprofit foundation are seeking candidates for sponsorship in our Job Readiness Program. We have partnered with private security and nursing training agencies to sponsor selected candidates to receive job training, transportation stipend or provision, licensure, and job placement at no cost to selected candidates, subject to funds availability and/or donor selection of candidate(s) in our Direct Donor Sponsorship Program.
Candidates must complete the following steps: Apply online BELOW, obtain one (1) letter of recommendation from a nonprofit organization or social service agency familiar with your stated need for assistance, and submit either a video submission (cameraphones, okay) or a professionally-looking selfie with a 3 to 5 page essay (typed or neatly-handwritten and scanned to a computer, 12-point font, double-spaced) introducing yourself and answering the following:
1. Why should you be selected for the No Excuses Foundation Job Readiness Program?
2. How would the training received improve your current family/financial status?
3. What are some of the common excuses you may have given/made and have they stopped you from achieving your goals?
4. What steps or solutions are you taking toward eliminating those excuses from your life and improving your individual social condition.
Please submit your essay/video submission and letter or recommendation by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Selected candidates will be contacted with further instructions on the next steps in the process.
