Alisha Swiney BA, MPA  Admissions Counselor, Job Corps 

Job Corps is a tuition-free training and education program that connects eligible young people, ages 16-24, with the skills and education opportunities they need to establish real careers.  Students can earn a high school diploma, a GED, or college credits through Job Corps. We offer career technical training in high growth career fields with completion of state certifications. Students receive housing, meals, basic health care, a living allowance, training, and preparation for a career, all at no cost.  For up to 12 months after graduation, a career transition counselor will help graduates make the transition from Job Corps into the real world.  We are currently enrolling for the three Ohio centers located in Cleveland, Cincinnati and Dayton and the Whitney Young Center in Kentucky; though for specific trades, centers outside of these can be explored. For more information on the program visit www.jobcorps.gov  or www.recruiting.jobcorps.gov. I am also attaching a brochure to this email.
I am located in Athens, OH, at the Ohio Means Jobs Center and would love to discuss our program and potential collaboration.  Please call or email me if you need more information or if you are interested in having a call or a meeting.
