Raul was awarded the CareerReady Scholarship when he was a 2018 high school senior at AAMA Sanchez Charter School. Through CareerReady, Raul was able to complete the A+ IT program at Houston Community College. With the help of his Life Coach, Raul created his resume and started applying for jobs.
It was difficult to find a job he was eligible for because he had no work experience. To give him hands-on work experience, Community created an entry level apprenticeship called CareerReady 2.0 in their IT department.
