Winter 2023 Cohort

Congratulations to Next Step graduates Alisha, Alvin, Myrlin, and Sarah, participants in our Winter 2023 training program.  During training, we worked on a number of group projects including oak work benches and walnut computer desks.  In our new computer & Makerspace area, we did SketchUp design and scale model making on the SharkCNC.  Each participant was able to design and build a custom project – Myrlin’s cherry hourglass table, Sarah’s maple moon table, Alvin’s walnut stepstool, and Alicia’s Japanese-inspired table all turned out beautifully.   And Goodwill did a great job assisting with soft skills and resume building through their Achieve program.  These four graduates are pursuing or have accepted employment with partner manufacturers including MillerKnoll, Nucraft, and Joseph Jeup.  Well done Alisha, Alvin, Myrlin, and Sarah!

Our next 7-week training session starts on Monday, March 13.  For more information or to make a referral, contact Roger Visker at 616-243-4477 or [email protected]
