The Roads2Work Program helps individuals receive job training toward a Commercial Driver's License (CDL).
Program Participants Must:
- Be 18 years old or older
- Have a household income of up to 200% of the federal poverty guidelines
- Have identified barriers to developing a career path
- Reside in the Columbus and Franklin County area
In partnership with Capital Transportation, the Roads2Work program is a five-week program that consists of one-week of soft skills training provided by IMPACT Community Action. Participants will attend classes Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Training will be followed by four weeks of the CDL specific training provided onsite at Capital Transportation. During those four weeks, training will be held Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. CDL training will consist of classroom instruction as well as vehicle maintenance and advanced operation. The goal of both the training components is to provide participants with the necessary skills to pass the licensing exam/drivers test, and secure employment within the trucking industry.
The Roads2Work participants will receive individual case management services through IMPACT. Case managers will also ensure the participant's accessibility to supportive services for barrier removal purposes.
