“Job Corps is a vital part of our economy. We provide a service that no other institution in the country provides, so it’s an honor to be part of this program. I would just hope that Congress and other political leaders will see the value in it and will continue to keep this program as strong as it always has been.” – Ellen May, Hawaii Job Corps (Waimanalo, HI)

“There are just endless opportunities and promise for students to fulfill potential.” – Melissa Tran, Woodstock Job Corps (Woodstock, MD)
