Real stories

Job Corps works. But don’t just take our word for it. Check out a few of our graduate success stories.

Sara Avatar
Sara
University of Washington Campus
Renewable Resources and Energy
Before Job Corps, Sara had graduated from high school and completed a couple of years at community college; but she didn’t know what she wanted to do. She had taken classes that weren’t suited for her personality, and she didn’t have great direction. Her roommate found out about Job Corps, and after some long conversations, they both decided to join.
Lisaira
Lisaira
FedEx Freight
Automotive and Machine Repair
Lisaira never let traditional gender roles define her. She grew up helping her dad work with trucks and racehorses, bull riding with her siblings and cousins, and wrestling on her high school team.

Michael
Ponder's Personal Chef Services
Hospitality
Michael is booked and busy. He’s the head chef at a senior living community, the owner of his own catering business and the father of a 3-year-old son—and he’s not stopping there.
