A Conversation with Daniel Villalta, American Diesel Training Centers Career Impact Bond Graduate

Daniel Villalta is a graduate of American Diesel Training Centers (ADTC). He enrolled in the program using the Career Impact Bond financing model with Social Finance. Before joining the ADTC program, Daniel attended community college for about a year but knew that it was not the right fit for him. He had always been handy and enjoyed fixing things for himself and for others but was struggling to figure out how to finance a career for himself. That led Daniel to enroll in ADTC’s Career Impact Bond. “The fact that they were paying very close attention to attendance and making sure you were there every day, periodically testing us, making sure we were learning in that short amount of time, it kind of just jump started my drive. It made me work even harder toward wanting to do this career path and grow,” he said.
