NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A new program that teaches interviewing skills and how to make a good first impression for employers is giving fathers a chance at success.

A pre-hiring job training event Wednesday was what 20-year-old Dameon Beasley said was the head start he needed.

Five months ago he earned his GED and within three months he will be a first time father.

“Trying to step up and be a great father. Be the best provider I can for my family. Give her a life I never had,” said Beasley.

At 17 years old Beasley was kicked out of school. It wasn’t until his older brother completed the GED program through the Metropolitan Action Commission that he decided to take another chance.
