Mike Petrak

Hi, my name is Mike Petrak, and I am the Founder and Executive Director of SNAP2Jobs!

My top five “High 5 Strengths” are being an Optimist, Analyst, Catalyst, Philomath, and Coach.

My favorite SNAP2Jobs moment has been…

…The privilege of calling jobseekers to tell them we are going to fully pay for their CDL training to become well paid truck drivers in a few weeks and rise abov economic poverty, some for the first time in their life. And to hear their joy/thanks/disbelief that someone would extend such grace without asking anything in return. It is such a memorable day in their lives. It’s a pure joy to be part of it. And a reminder that we too have been extended an even greater grace beyond measure.

My first job was as a paper boy where I learned most of my jokes from the daily joke column!
