The Milwaukee Urban League (Milwaukee, WI) is looking to help at least 303 people get their driver's license, free of charge.

It’s all through a program they’ve been operating for more than 20 years. Now, they’re pushing harder to get more people into the courses than ever before.

The monthly course is free to everyone who qualifies. That includes anyone enrolled in the State of Wisconsin’s Food Share Employment and Training (FSET) program. Drivers must also have no unpaid citations or fines.
