A good foundation of basic education and knowledge is necessary for success in any career.
While at Job Corps, your child will earn a high school diploma or the equivalent if they don't already have one and will receive instruction and tutoring in English Language Learning, math, reading, science, and writing if extra help is needed.
Success in the workplace requires other skills too.
At Job Corps, we teach our students how to live independently. This includes how to dress appropriately for work, be on time, solve problems, communicate with bosses and co-workers, resolve conflicts, make good decisions on the job, and so much more.
Job Corps is designed to help your student learn what life is going to be like outside of the program.
Students will live, learn, train, and work in a very structured environment. There are rules to follow, curfews to meet, and uniforms to wear. Getting used to a highly-structured atmosphere and being away from home can be very difficult. Your child may need extra support while participating in the program. Look for ways to encourage, including calls, e-mails, and letters.
Job Corps has a zero-tolerance policy for drugs and violence.
