Former Cleveland Job Corpsmembers are currently employed as teachers, nurses, dental assistants, keypunch operators, welders, railroad personnel and members of the armed services. The Cleveland Center became coeducational and non-residential in 1976. At that time young men and women who live in Cleveland became corpsmembers and attend classes at the Center. Currently there are a variety of entry-level vocations offered at the Center in such fields as health services, welding, railroading, clerical , and selected industrial trades. A new program is prov ing successful for sixteen corpsmembers enrolled full-time at Cuyhoga Community College. Upon successfully completing the Job Corps Program, a corpsmember may apply for an Alpha Kappa Alpha Scholarship for further study. Additional financial aid packages may be arranged through the Center's Placement Department. Several former Cleveland Corpsmembers are matriculating at colleges throughout the country on Alpha Kappa Alpha scholarships. The Job Corps Centers were established in 1965 as a national resident training program for economically disadvantaged youths 16-21 years old who had left school and needed the program's intensive services. Job Corps provided basic education (including GED), vocational training, work experience, ' constructive leisure activities, counseling, health care as well See Page 2
