Job Corps Students Explain Why “They’re Worth it” – Part IV

Job Corps students from MTC centers explain why they are worth the investment.

“I’m worth it because after Job Corps I’m going to become a union apprentice making $21 an hour up in Bronx, New York.”




“Back when I was growing up, I didn’t really have a lot growing up. So, I had to do better for me and my daughter, so I’m doing all this for her. And I’m worth it.”




“Until I came to Job Corps, I didn’t even know if I was worth it or not. But I believe in the program because it helped me discover, it’s just a program where you can help discover yourself. Because before I came here I was lost.”
