MIGUEL JR'S with INLAND EMPIRE JCC

“Job corps has provided trained and work ready students to our restaurants across San Bernardino County. We have partnered with Job Corps for their Work Based Learning opportunity and offered a paid internship that would ultimately become a permanent position. We also joined the center with special cooking events such as providing the students an opportunity to cook Turkeys for our company event. “

FAB-TECH, INC./CPS GROUP with NORTHLANDS JCC

“I have enjoyed meeting students from different parts of the country who have different professional (welding) goals. The leadership team in the Welding department has been very adept in identifying students’ skills and developing them to their utmost potential. There is one former student who has now been with Fab-Tech for almost two years – he has progressed from his starting position as a Welder Helper to a full-time Welder who is very skilled and well respected among his peers. He is a rising star!”, “I strongly believe in developing students’ skills in the Workforce Development program. Fab-Tech has hosted several students in their final year of training and they have been an asset to the Welding department. They are eager to learn and I think it is very important for practical/hands-on experience to be part of their training at Northlands. The Northlands students are very skilled and well trained!"

CAREY MANUFACTURING with HARTFORD JCC

“We have been lucky to have hired some great young people who have learned our business, matured as time went on and went on to success both within our companies and in some cases, left for bigger and better opportunities. Some we hated to lose but we always considered it a success for our company when that happened. Carey and Floyd have been strong advocates of the Hartford Job Corps Academy. I've had the opportunity to appear on local media, been part of state and local advisory boards, and speak often to my colleagues. Whenever the opportunity arises, I always talk about my company's relationship with the Hartford Job Corps Academy. We are always pleased and proud to give a young man or women an opportunity to be employed in a field that they worked so hard towards. Seeing them succeed and progress is a success story for both the student and Carey/Floyd.“

This passion is contagious and we would love the opportunity to continue building our relationship and providing a career path for their students”, “GFS recently had the opportunity to donate food to the Earle C. Clements Job Corps food drive. Our driver Travis Jones delivered the products and personally witnessed the impact the food donation will make in the community.
