The next cycle of the sixteen-week program launches on June 19th, and includes assessments, testing, employment skills training, life skills workshops, academic instruction, community service projects, field trips, and counseling services. Program participants will prepare for the high school equivalency examination, and receive a stipend of $100 per week, based on attendance for the full week. Free transportation is provided. Childcare is also provided free of charge at the Little Sprouts Early Learning Center. Participants must be Sussex or Warren County residents, aged 16 – 25, who have not completed high school.
Project Self-Sufficiency is offering a $100 gift card to those who refer young adults, ages 16 – 25, to the agency’s New Jersey Youth Corps program; referred individuals must enroll in the program, complete the two-week orientation and be inducted into the program. The New Jersey Youth Corps gives young adults the opportunity to augment their literacy skills, prepare for the high school equivalency exam, obtain on-the-job work experience, and transition into a career, college or the military.
