Youth Corps Program at Project Self-Sufficiency is enrolling young people ages 16-25

The sixteen-week program gives those who have not completed high school the opportunity to boost 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.  Project Self-Sufficiency is offering a $100 gift card to those who refer a young adult, ages 16 – 25, to the New Jersey Youth Corps training and education program.  In order to receive the gift card, referred individuals must enroll in the program, complete the two-week orientation and be inducted into the program.

Participants in the New Jersey Youth Corps must be Sussex or Warren County residents, aged 16 – 25, who have not completed high school.  The program includes assessments, testing, employability 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 at the Little Sprouts Early Learning Center
