Brandon Russell

Brandon came to Michigan Works! as basic skills deficient, homeless, and a high school graduate. He had a work history but had trouble balancing permanent employment with school and life expectations.


Case Managers worked with Brandon to develop strong job search techniques as well as developing a skills profile which allowed him to communicate to employers the benefits in hiring him. Brandon and Case Managers worked together to develop plans to balance school, work, and other life occurrences. Case Managers also worked to help Brandon enroll in Montcalm Community College for his Automotive Mechanic Certificate by helping develop an academic plan and applying for financial aid. WIA Youth funding helped cover the large cost of tools required for the Automotive Mechanic Certificate field experience. Case managers also helped Brandon find stable housing, and continue to support him in developing complete independence.


Earlier this month Ed Koehn of Greenville hired Brandon as a full time mechanic. They are willing to work around his school schedule as they consider this an investment in a great employee. He plans on returning for his Associates degree and eventually opening his own business. Of the program Brandon says: "Michigan Works! helped give me direction. They helped me make a plan, and they believed in me, so I believed I could do it."
