Like many of us, John Bailey has endured some obstacles. After a spending time in prison, he was motivated to join a pre-apprenticeship construction training program and applied for SDC’s Absolute Advantage.

“I told myself give it a chance and I gave myself a chance with it and everything paid off,” says John.

Through SDC’s Absolute Advantage program, John gained a support team, a mentor, and the skills he needed to continue to elevate in the construction field. After graduating, he received a job with a local electric company.
