The Trucking Cares Foundation recently made a generous donation of $25,000 to the Center for Employment Training. This organization is dedicated to providing education and hands-on training to individuals who are eager to secure employment in high-demand fields. With 12 programs spread across California, Texas, and Virginia, the center is making a significant impact.

“CET’s mission is to equip individuals with skills that will enable them to obtain careers leading to self-sufficiency in high-demand occupations and prepare them for a lifetime of success,” said TCF Chairman Phil Byrd, president and CEO of Bulldog Hiway Express. “Through this donation, the Trucking Cares Foundation hopes to open the door of opportunity to more young people seeking economic independence and rewarding careers in the trucking industry.”

“At the Center for Employment Training, our Truck Driving Program is more than just learning to operate a vehicle; it’s a commitment to human development and self-sufficiency,” said Hermelinda Sapien, president and CEO of Center for Employment Training. “Through hands-on skills training, we empower underserved and underrepresented populations with barriers to employability, providing a tangible pathway to gain the skills needed for a fulfilling and independent future. Our mission is to drive positive change by equipping individuals with the tools they need to navigate not just the roads but the journey toward self-reliance and success.”

In an effort to foster economic growth and build thriving communities, CET, an economic and community development corporation, focuses on empowering individuals through practical skill training and invaluable support. By equipping people with marketable skills, CET paves the way for self-sufficiency and opportunities for personal development and education.
