I have been a board member at FIT for many years and have consistently been proud to be involved with an extraordinary group of people accomplishing extraordinary results for unemployed and underemployed motivated clients. Every penny raised goes to provide vocational testing and training of clients, all officers and board members serve without pay and in fact pay for the opportunity to serve. FIT's success rate is unmatched in this segment, and is a direct result of the daily interaction with clients that has always separated FIT from other vocational training providers.
It would be nice if this place would actually have job listings posted on their website, they have outdated job fairs and basically nobody seems to care about how hard it is for a person with a criminal background to find work. I am disappointed to even say this is one of the only choices for people like myself to find something on the web to earn income. Regret wasting my time checking this so-called job placement team out!
The main female manager I was reporting to denied funding for school due to "marketable skills". She was very rude, not knowledgeable, and exposed my personal information via email with my ID and other information unsecurely emailed in plain text that would violate most non-profit policy. I have complained to their staff who refused to resolve the issue as well. They don't list their legal dept because they lack one.
I will never recommend this rancid group to anyone seeking full time employment.
These people came off as racist. I left here and tried hope 4 P. Much better program. Don't come here if you on Parole or Probation. They don't give you good time credit for this fraud scam of a non-profit
My name is Keith Young. I'm not much of a writer, but I wanted to take this opportunity
to tell of my experience with "FIT" and what they did for me.
First I want to start off by saying thanks to (Fit) Foundation For An Independent Tomorrow. And thank you to the staff that worked to help me to Gain my CDL License. the methods they used for getting Individuals ready for interveiws, and also to go out into the work place and be confident was very helpful. I believe the staff worked really hard, and had a real passion for helping others to get a second chance at success. They were also very incouraging, optimistic, and supportive . I would, and have already recommended Fit to a number of co-workers and colleague's who too were seeking to better themselves and become more successful. Thank You Fit!!!
I was looking to obtain my Class A CDL when my school recruiter suggested I apply for a grant through the WIOA program. After being turned down by Nye County Community Coalition, someone suggested I try FIT and the rest is history. I have now graduated from a local Trucking School and I am ready to begin my new career. My heartfelt thanks to the entire staff, board and founder of Foundation For An Independent Tomorrow.

FIT IS A GOOD ORGANIZATION THAT HELPS PEOPLE JOB SEEKING AND TRAINING. THEY HELPED ME FIND WORK AND HELP ME GET MY OSHA 10 AND FORKLIFTING LICENSE.
The non profit organization FIT has succeeded in helping me obtain multiple certifications to assist me in finding full time employment.
They have a pc lab which works but always havin issues when I'm there since it's Wifi. That's why I rated 4 star. It cuts off sometimes.
I've been very impressed with what I have seen at FIT. They do all they can to help those in need find employment, and provide training and mentoring. The staff is professional, friendly, and genuinely seem to care about their clients. These are good people working for a good cause, and I have the utmost respect for what they do.
I first learned about FIT in 2013. I toured their facilities and met a few of the board members and was very impressed. The staff and the board members are 100% focused on the mission of helping unemployed, and under-employed Nevadan's get the training needed to get good paying jobs. I joined the board in 2015 and have seen numerous success stories where individuals were able to get jobs that allow them to support their families without public assistance. This is what a charity should do .... help people to help themselves. FIT is a tremendous asset to Southern Nevada.
The services FIT provides has helped to give people jobs who are facing barriers in employment. They have gifted people with the work tools to enhance their lives. I think they are outstanding since nobody else in the city provides these services directly.
