Local Hero Spotlight
We have local heroes in our communities and they are working hard at the Job Corps Centers in your neighborhoods! We had the pleasure of touring the San Jose site with Deputy Center Director, Chris Allen who transitioned from public education 8 years ago to join Job Corps. His passion and dedication to the program was an inspiration to our team.
"Along, the way I had people who believed in me and that is why I do what I do. I believe everyone deserves the chance to live their dream, an opportunity to better themselves through education and career technical training. If I could make it, I believe anyone can make it. Sometimes it just takes the right people in your life. I believe in being the difference and making a difference in young adult lives. When you find something you love to do, you never work a day in your life." - C.Allen
Job Corps is a no-cost education and career technical training program administered by the U.S. Department of Labor that helps young people ages 16 through 24 improve the quality of their lives through career technical and academic training.
