Brendon Davis came to Johnston County Industries’ Yes I Can Program about two years ago after being frustrated with the path that he was on. Making some poor choices that many youth do, Brendon was ready for a change in his life. Having a child of his own now, he wanted to set a better example for his daughter. By doing so, he inquired about the Yes I Can Program, which is funded through the Workforce Investment Act by Capital Area Workforce Development Board.
Brendon began taking GED classes at JCI and the staff of the Yes I Can program assisted him in setting goals and supported him with those goals. With the encouragement and resources of the Yes I Can program, along with Brendon’s drive and determination he complete the requirements to earn his GED and put himself in a position for gainful employment.
After obtaining his GED, JCI’s Yes I Can program provided Brendon with a work experience at the Selma Housing Authority. This was Brendon’s chance to prove himself with real world on-the-job experience. Brendon excelled on the job and the Selma Housing Authority staff were impressed, so much, that after the work experience was completed, they hired him on full-time.
