What’s Up? Career Transitions Receives $5,000 from 1st Security Bank supporting students’ careers & employment

Career Transitions has received a very generous donation of $5000 from 1st Security Bank. The donation is in addition to their annual Blue Jean Friday contributions. Both donations are used to support those needing services at CT who do not fit the criteria through our funding sources.  We are able to provide training to enhance students’ abilities for career advancement and employment through the contributions like these. We are always aware of how important these donations are in the lives of those seeking a better quality of life and are grateful.
