The Job Corps program has been around for 50 years and has been very successful in training and educating America's young adults and making them productive citizens. This shortfall has already affected hundreds of center staff, OA contractors, current and prospective students as well. Staff have been laid off, students are being rushed to complete, and no new students are able to come in. This is all continuing until June 30, unless we do something about it. Everyone please contact your congressmen and senators about this travesty.

To:
Congress and Senate
Save the Job Corps program

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      My son is in the Job Corps program right now and this is the only way he is going to get the training he needs to become a responsible, self-sufficient, productive member of society. Without this program, too many of our young people would be on welfare programs right now. The long-term effects of the Job Corps Programs are far more important than the cost savings. We need to invest in our youth!

      This program and the DVJCC center helped me to have and take some direction in my life. I have friends who are now my family because i attended job corps. Without the program many of us would not be where we are today myself included. I saw people coming in off the streets without homes or just those that fooled around. By the time they completed the program they had jobs waiting for them. They were going forward with their lives and realizing dreams that were probably long forgotten. Help us save job corps because its worth saving.
