Mike Hansen gleefully presents Maurizio with his Motive Action Scholarship.

Maurizio worked various construction jobs before being laid off and collecting EI. He felt he couldn’t get ahead without more training.  “Always wanted to be a Heavy Duty Tech but didn’t have the proper training so I couldn’t get the opportunity to try,” he stated.

Since completing the Motive Action program, he feels a lot more optimistic. “I have seen growth in my skills to become what I always wanted to be and without the help of the program, I couldn’t give myself or my family the life I always wanted them to have – a life filled with opportunities to whichever door they wanted to walk through.  Now, I have enough to put them through school and not suffer like I have trying to make ends meet.” Maurizio is now a Heavy Equipment Technician Apprentice.
