The Bamberg Job Corps Center and the Lower Savannah WIA Youth programs are co-enrolling youth participants. Co-enrollment occurs when two agencies/programs/funding sources enroll and serve the same individual concurrently or sequentially. The objective of co-enrollment is to broaden the service and placement support needs. Furthermore, co-enrollment allows the partners to share credit for program outcomes.
Job Corps is a comprehensive education and training program for disadvantaged youths ages 16-24. The Job Corps program offers students the opportunity to enroll in basic education and GED classes while they receive vocational training in many areas. Job Corps training is self-paced. Job Corps also gives women the skills to be self-sufficient and self-reliant.
