On Friday, August 25th, 2017 the Edison Job Corps will be celebrating the success of our young citizens who have received the education and vocational training necessary to become independent, employed and productive community members. This year we expect to recognize close to one hundred and fifty graduates, many of which are already pursuing a career of their choice. The graduation will be taking place from 12:30pm – 2:30pm located at 500 Plainfield Avenue, Edison NJ 08817.  

The Commencement Ceremony will include former student, Ms. Dalia Martin. Ms. Martin was born in Jamaica and immigrated to the United States at the age of 7. At the age of 19, Ms. Martin recognized the opportunities that Job Corps had to offer and she took full advantage of the program and sucessfully graduated the program in 2016. Today, Ms. Martin works for the New York City District Council of Carpenters for Local 157. 

Job Corps is a tuition-free education and vocational training program administered by the U.S. Department of Labor that helps young people ages 16-24 improve the quality of their lives through vocational and academic training. Funded by Congress, Job Corps has been training young adults for meaningful careers since 1964. Job Corps is committed to offering all students a safe, drug-free environment where they can take advantage of the resources provided.

At Edison Job Corps Center, we support the Job Corps program's mission of teaching eligible young people the skills they need to become employable and independent and placing them in meaningful jobs or further education.
