In this episode, you'll listen to my conversation with Luke Kujacznski, who outlines how the Momentum Employment program offered through the Urban Alliance in Kalamazoo, Michigan. To date, Momentum has helped more than 200 folks rise above their issues with criminal pasts, homelessness, substance abuse and extreme poverty to train them with the skills to help them find great jobs in the Skilled Trades.

The proven results of the Momentum program are clearly measurable and repeatable. As such, this program needs to be showcased broadly and replicated across the US.
