Training Session 3: Coming to an End

We will be joining friends and family at the graduation ceremony on Friday, October 4, as we celebrate the growth students have experienced during their 13-week training program. All 16 students are Vocational Rehabilitation consumers and will be returning to their hometowns where they will work with a local employment consultant to continue on their employment journey. Watch for graduation pictures and this class's graduation video on our social media outlets!

Employment Success

EGTI's ultimate goal is for graduates to put their skills to use by securing employment. To track student outcomes, EGTI graduates receive a survey 8 and 18 months post graduation. To the left, you will see the most recent data from the follow-up survey. 80% of EGTI graduates are working 8 months post graduation, and 74% are still working 18 months post graduation.


Throughout the years, EGTI has received requests for hats to be added to the apparel order form. We have heard your requests and are excited to finally have these available! Click on the button below to view the order form. Apparel Order Form
