Participating in Job Corps for the last year 20-year-old Lyndsey Alexander has been studying to be an Electrician. Now, all finished up with her program she is moving on to even bigger opportunities. “It's changed my life in a lot of ways. I didn't really have anything completed when I originally came and now I'm fully completed and I’m going into advanced trade in another Job Corps trade in another Job Corps center in Florida,” says Alexander.
Alexander is among many with a successful story. Kehaulani Flanders has been studying business administration and is also furthering her education. “I'm going to go to Weber State College August 26th where I’d like to do a degree doing business, English and Art.”
