The Tulsa County Job Corps campus has immediate availability to safely provide campus living, overall health and wellness, and educate qualified applicants and place them directly into employment in our community.
At the Tulsa Job Corps, the campus has the capacity to serve 235 students aged 16-24 in areas such as healthcare, security, and construction. In addition, the campus works directly with local and national employers to help them fill in-demand and well-paying positions. This includes CVS Health, Allied Security, St. Francis, and Google.
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic significantly reduced the number of students the Tulsa Job Corps Center has served over the past year and a half. But with effective vaccines and continued safety precautions, Tulsa Job Corps is now ready to resume full operation opportunities and is set to physically welcome new students on its campus May 3.
“We are incredibly excited that our campus has reopened for training opportunities and are eager to bring in deserving young people and help them start their careers,” said Kenneth Williams, Center Director at the Tulsa Job Corps campus, “With a long track record of successfully placing our graduates into meaningful careers in Tulsa and surrounding counties, we want our community to know that Tulsa Job Corps is a terrific first option for any interested young person.”
The Tulsa Job Corps campus has already demonstrated they are able to provide safe and healthy residential living and serve students effectively despite COVID. The program has protocols and policies in place to track COVID symptoms, test, and prevent an outbreak.
“The past two years has been trying for all of us. This time has also shown us that Job Corps dedication to teaching trades to young people has made a big difference not only in the lives of our students and their families, but in the lives of Americans reliant upon the work Job Corps alumni have been trained to do,” said Byron V. Garrett, CEO and President of National Job Corps Association. “Given our availability to immediately serve students, we know the potential for our campuses to transform lives and want everyone to know that Job Corps is reopened and ready to help.”
