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

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.

Pandora Castleton
Finance and Business
After graduating from high school and attending University of Indianapolis for a while, Kaylyn decided college wasn’t the best fit. She started working in retail, but Kaylyn didn’t see herself moving up, working a job with little to no growth opportunity. She was also looking to move out of her mother’s house and needed more income to be financially independent. Kaylyn was looking for a better future.
