Spotlight on San Antonio - Skills for Business
Organizations and Groups:
[Mark Etienne, Director, Office of Eastpoint] This is a historic project for the east side because we finally have a one-stop center or facility where we can provide job training services, child care services, GED classes and job placement--make that available to east side residents.
[Kendra Franklin, student] I heard about this program riding down the street one day. I saw the flyer and it took my interest. They've helped so much. I started off as a CNA [certified nursing assistant] and I'm now in school to be a medical assistant. I'm going to go for LVN [licensed vocational nurse], and after that RN [registered nurse], and after that, just keep going. My goal is to be a doctor.
[Etienne] Give yourselves a round of applause.
