The Milwaukee Job Corps Center is recruiting 300 young people between the ages of 16-24 to fill its training slots. Because response from Milwaukee has been slow, the slots have been opened to applicants in a six (6) state region. If the slots are not filled by April, they will be opened to anyone in the country.
Job Corps is offering a 2-year training program in three fields: health care, manufacturing and construction.
In addition, Job Corps has an academic center that helps students obtain their GED and strengthen their reading and math skills. Trainees must meet federal poverty guidelines. While priority is given to homeless youth and those aging out of the foster care system, nearly all students meeting federal poverty guidelines are eligible.
A background check will be performed to confirm the applicant is not: on probation, parole, or under a suspended sentence; under the supervision of any agency as a result of court action or institutionalization, unless the court or appropriate agency certifies in writing that it will approve of the applicant’s release from its face-to-face supervision and that the applicant’s release does not violate applicable laws and regulations.
Applications for admission are being taken at the Job Corps Placement Center Recruiting and Placement Office, located at 611 W National Ave. # 209.
The Job Corps Center campus is located on 60th and Green Tree Rd. Students live in dormitories on campus.
