Student Spotlights

Atterbury Job Corps Student Bryant Christensen

Bryant was living in Indianapolis, Indiana when he heard about Atterbury Job Corps Center in Edinburgh, Indiana. When asked about this student’s work ethic his instructor Mike Sharp reported Bryant had an extreme attention to detail and was hardworking from the first day he stepped foot in the classroom. Bryant started training on March 21st, 2018 and completed his training program on July 13th, 2018. At age 20 Bryant is working full-time for Force Construction in Columbus, Indiana out of OPCMIA Local 692 making roughly three times the minimum wage in the State of Indiana.

Oneonta Job Corps Student Shaquille Sealey

Shaquille immigrated from the West Coast of Berbice, Guyana at age 14 to the United States. He entered the Oneonta Job Corps Center in upper state New York on June 13th, 2017. Shaquille could be described as dedicated and driven when others reflected on his time in the program. Just five days after his graduation from Oneonta Job Corps on August 1st, 2018 Shaquille began working for Regal Construction Group in NY! He belongs to OPCMIA Local 780 based out of Whitestone, New York. For privacy purposes we have decided not to share our student’s current wage, however we are proud to say Shaquille is living above the wage average in New York making roughly 2.5 times more than someone of similar age/skill.
