CORPSMEMBER DEVELOPMENT

At the Corps, we know that it takes more than just providing our Corpsmembers with work skills training for them to succeed.

Therefore, we make a promise to every Corpsmember to connect them with dedicated staff ready to assist them to achieve their goals. Our Corpsmember Development team works hard to provide a wide range of services – from Support to Transition Services – that remove barriers in a Corpsmembers life, help them connect them with community resources, provide personal and professional development opportunities and programming, and set them on a pathway to career-track job and/or post-secondary education.

Corpsmember Support Services

Each Corpsmember receives case management and life skills advising to address any barriers that may impede success. Corps Navigators work with our young people to provide general counseling, goal setting, and referrals for housing, mental health, healthcare, legal issues, and child care. Support service funding is available to assist Corpsmembers that need additional help to ensure they’re successful in the program.

College & Career Transitional Services

Corpsmembers receive educational and vocational advisement while they are enrolled in the program. Corpsmembers also receive assistance transitioning to well-paying jobs including resume development, interview prep, and networking opportunities. We provide life skills education including driver’s education, financial literacy and time management. Corpsmembers leave our program prepared for post-secondary education and full-time employment.
