JOB CORPS ADMISSIONS is in search of some great young people ages 16-24!
Job Corps is operated through the U.S. Department of Labor and has been a viable (no cost) option for young people for 45 years! The premise of this residential program is to make a young person employable by encouraging self development and providing an environment conducive to creating a more marketable and independent youth. To us, employability includes the following: 1. Hands on training (over 100 competitive trades are offered at various centers across the country including CNA, LPN, Medical Office Support, Culinary Arts, Carpentry, Heavy Equipment Operator, Heavy Equipment Mechanics, Welding, Urban Forestry and much more!) 2. A completed education (earn a high school diploma or GED if a person does not have one already) 3. Mobility (students have an opportunity to earn a driver’s license while in the program)
Job Corps is a drug free environment and drug tests are mandatory upon entry; there are also other “zero tolerance” policies in place to ensure the safety of students and staff, and create an environment similar to work/school.
