Success Stories See All

Motive Action was the best thing that happened to me. It opened the path for a better future with a steady job and new automotive skills. I feel confident to get involved in the trade that I truly love to work in… Working in this trade [creates] a good feeling with great colleagues and a better future.


I am able to help my family with bills, rent, and food. I am able to spend money on things that I couldn’t afford before. I’ve also met people with the same interests as mine and made new friends because of those interests. I am one step closer to becoming a Journeyman and finally achieving my goal of owning my own shop.


I love what I do, and I have a career in a great trade. Before this, I felt lost and had no sense of direction in terms of what I wanted in life and throughout the course of employment, but after attending school and getting a job in the industry everything is different. I now know where I am headed, and I am constantly learning new things thanks to Motive Action.
