“It is never too late to make things right... there’s no room for excuses, all you need to do is make an effort to succeed.”

At twenty-two, Anita Anfo left her job in Los Angeles California to attend Clearfield Job Corps. She decided she wanted to do more with her life than her job had to offer her. It just wasn’t going to take her down the road she wanted to take.

Anita was admitted to Job Corps on August 17th, 2007, finished her five weeks in Career Prep and finished her work in Health Occupations roughly a month later. She then began working on her High School diploma and got a part-time job while going to school. “Having a positive attitude and applying the workplace ethics that she learned in Career Prep” helped her to not only be effective on the job but in school as well. Attributing it as well to earning her a college scholarship.

Anita graduated from Clearfield Job Corps as a Full Program Completer on May 22, 2008. She plans on continuing her education and using her scholarship to the best of her ability over the next four years to “Achieve everything that I can.”

When asked what she thought the best lesson that Job Corps had helped her to realize or learn. She summarized the answer with “Keeping a positive attitude and respect for those you work and learn with”.

Ms. Anfo wants to share her experience at Job Corps and let other students know that “It is never too late to make things right. Always look forward to your future as the past is in the past and there’s no room for excuses, all you need to do is make an effort to succeed.”

The staff here at Clearfield Job Corps wishes Ms. Anfo all the best in her future and looks forward to hearing from her as she progresses through her continuing education and life.
