Meet Dean McCabe

Workforce Challenge:

Dean McCabe, fifty-one-year-old U.S. Navy Veteran and Torrance resident, had years of limited success in finding stable employment. He was determined to increase his skills therefore, he enrolled in welding classes at SoCalRoc in Torrance. He was provided with additional resources that lead him to the South Bay One-Stop Business & Career Center in Torrance.


Workforce Solution:

Dean immediately received case management services that assisted him in attaining a job interview. Shortly after that he was approved for funding for welding classes. Additionally, he was informed about various job fairs, was sent to job interviews and received resume assistance. He was also referred to an Apprenticeship program with Operating Engineers Training Trust and got accepted.

Outcome and Benefits:

Dean completed his two year welding programs and landed a union job and is earning an average of $8,000-$10,000 per month!

“Without the assistance of my case manager and Propath staff, I would probably never have achieved such a state

of success and stability at this late time in my life.”
