Transformation Story

Meet Aaron Cobos

"On Monday, my new chapter begins: I’ll be a Forge Helper at Weber Metals. I’ll be taking raw materials and putting them in the forge to get pressed into airplane parts. I thought about that when we did a tour of the plant: when I came here [to Homeboy], I was a raw piece of metal, and through the process of working on myself and getting to know myself… now, I’m a shiny new part. I’ve never been this happy in my life."
