Olga Sanchez

Laborers Local 185


“Before Olga Sanchez came to our program she was struggling with her direction in life. She lost her children and didn’t know what to do after that heartbreaking experience. The Greater Sacramento Urban League referred her to our program because she was on welfare. She was tired of working part time jobs and wanted her children to be proud of their mother. So, she decided to attend NCCT for training and to find a career. She showed up every day with a positive attitude and willingness to learn. While in the program, Olga developed proper work habits such as time management abilities, problem-solving, self-confidence and being a team player. Olga stood out as a student and was given the opportunity to try out for the Laborer Union (Local 185) and was accepted. Her husband Robert Sanchez, a NCCT student, was also accepted in the Laborer Union as well. Olga and Robert recently got her children back and bought a car for their family. Olga is drug free and on the right path for her future! I personally could not be more proud of the things she has accomplished. I feel that she has made the best of this program and used all the resources available to her! When Olga is between jobs with the Union, she drives our DRC West/Sac shuttle van!”
