Enrollment for the next session of the New Jersey Youth Corps program at Project Self-Sufficiency is underway.

The 16-week program launches Monday, Oct. 8, at Project Self-Sufficiency.

The New Jersey Youth Corps gives those who have not completed high school the opportunity to boost their literacy skills, prepare for the high school equivalency exam, obtain on-the-job work experience, and transition into a career, college or the military. Interested participants are invited to attend an Open House at Project Self-Sufficiency to learn more about the New Jersey Youth Corps and to complete an application. Open Houses will be held on Tuesdays, 5–6 p.m., Sept. 10, 17 and 24, and on Wednesdays, 9-10 a.m., Sept. 11, 18 and 25.

In addition, Project Self-Sufficiency is offering a $100 gift card to those who refer a young adult, ages 16-25, to the New Jersey Youth Corps training and education program. In order to receive the gift card, referred individuals must enroll in the program, complete the two-week orientation and be inducted into the program.
