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.
English Language Learning Program
Students needing to learn English can enter our English Language Learning (ELL) program. Students in the ELL program are tested regularly to determine their language proficiency levels.
Tutoring programs are available where students are tutored in math, reading, social studies, and writing by instructors or by fellow students (Peer Student Tutors). Students interested in getting into a tutoring program may contact their instructors or the Academic Manager.
The Advanced Career Training (ACT) Program
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. To qualify for this program, a student must have a high school diploma or GED (from our center or another educational facility) and have successfully completed a vocational trade at Job Corps.
Benefits of the College Program include:
- academic advisement, mentoring, and tutoring
- paid tuition, fees, books, and supplies
- housing and recreation
- meals provided by Job Corps, on-and-off center
- transportation to and from college of choice
Driver's Education is available to all students needing their driver's license.
