Twin Cities RISE Partners with MTA for New Diesel Technician Pathway Program

Twin Cities RISE is currently partnering with the Minnesota Trucking Association in a new career pathway program focused on diesel technicians. This pathway has already created an amazing connection with employers who provide wonderful employment support, on-the-job training, successful job on-boarding, and careers with livable fair wages along with career advancement!

The individuals taking part in the training program are enjoying their exposure to the trucking industry demonstrated by the pictures of a recent employer tour with Rihm Family Companies. “We are so honored to create the connection of community talent to fantastic careers,” said Jacquelyn Carpenter, Vice President, Workforce Development, Twin Cities Rise.

Our vision is a community where all individuals, especially people of color, have attained financial independence through employment success. Partnering with MTA and these key employers provides us new ways to honor and achieve our mission. We are so thankful for this opportunity!”
