Job Corps student studying in classroom

Academics

In addition to career training, Flint/Genesee Job Corps also provides academic training, including basic reading and math. Courses in independent living, employability skills, and social skills are offered in order to help students transition into the workplace. We also have several academic programs to help our students achieve their full potential.


GED/High School Diploma

One of our top goals at Flint/Genesee Job Corps is to ensure that every qualified student obtains his or her GED/high school diploma prior to leaving the center. Students who don't already have a high school diploma upon their arrival at Flint/Genesee can enroll in our GED program.

Students can earn their high school diplomas from one of two fully accredited school programs. Our partnership with the Flint-Genesee County School District allows our students to attend high school classes off center and participate in their school activities including graduation.  High school classes can also be attended online.


Advanced Career Training

The Advanced Career Training (ACT) program is a college program for eligible Job Corps students to achieve a higher level of career training. We have ACT partnerships with Baker College, Davenport University, and Mott Community College.
