Real stories

Real stories

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

Cassandra Avatar
H-5 Construction
When Cassandra arrived at the Alaska Job Corps Center in 2019, she was looking for a way to make a stable income and set herself up for independence. Cassandra did not know she would soon end up as a leader in the Construction training program, a typically male-dominated industry. She never let being one of the only women in the shop stop her. Instead, she let it motivate her. Cassandra committed to working that much harder to prove her worth. She gave it her all, and it paid off.

Kyle, Texas, Police
Homeland Security
Dago continues to give back to his community as he advocates for the prevention of violence, aggression and bullying.
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.
