Virtual

The WITT program helped me discover potential careers that I wouldn’t have realized before taking part in one of their workshops. It was a safe, helpful environment where I was able to learn so much. With the help of some wonderful people at WITT I was given the encouragement and confidence to decide the next step towards my future. Pre-employment welding was the best choice for me. After the intro to welding and valuable experience I gained in the WITT workshop it wasn’t a difficult jump for me to make. I strongly encourage everyone to go to a workshop. There are always skills to learn and experience is to gain.
