Andrew Cano, 20, from Colorado Springs, has spent his summer doing what he enjoys most. An experienced mechanic, Andrew's past job experience includes working in landscape maintenance and automotive repairs. His current job, funded by the Recovery Act, has allowed him to pursue his passion further. An intern at Weisburg Construction, Andrew spends his time helping the Weiseberg mechanics fix lawn mowers, edgers and automobiles.


"If I didn't have this job right now," Andrew explains, "I'd be doing nothing but looking for a job¿ This job has given me something to do everyday, something to look forward to." Andrew says that the Recovery Act has helped him save money for school and allowed him to purchase tools for his car projects at home.


Andrew's future plans are to go to school and get his ASE certification in automotives, eventually working his way up to his master's degree.
