MEDFORD, Ore. -- Youth 71five Ministries is giving young adults a chance to have a career through a special vocational training program.
The training is for young men and women ages 16 to 24.
"If I didn’t get introduced into the VoTech program, I would be still doing the things that I used to be doing which wasn’t good," Isaiah Higuera said.
The program includes training in skills that include welding, carpentry or automotive work.
"In our community there are thousands of jobs in the vocational trade that are going unfulfilled," Bud Amundsen said.
The program is also helping bulid life-long relationships.
"The VoTech program has helped me with focusing on my life, staying on track and having hope," Higuera said.
