Featured Student of the Month
Name: Clorissa Eaton
Hometown: Brooklyn, New York
Job Corps Center: Iroquois Job Corps Center, Medina, New York
Occupational Area: Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)
Education: At Job Corps, I earned my high school diploma, certifications in electrocardiogram (EKG), cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), first aid, and my CNA license. I also earned my driver's license.
Favorite hobbies: Being active, cleaning, and hosting events.
I joined Job Corps because: I was at a point that I needed to make a choice that would change my life. I needed something to help me focus and reach my goals. I knew that whatever choices I made my younger sister was watching. I had to make a choice to be a good role model.
Job Corps is helping me achieve my goals: Job Corps helped me to obtain my education, job skills, and certifications. I completed a 12-week, paid work-based learning (WBL) internship at Genesee County Nursing Home. At the end of my internship, I was permanently hired as a CNA and made plans to relocate. My experiences at Job Corps have changed my life.
The thing I like most about Job Corps: The staff are warm and nurturing. They treated me like family. They were the reason I became successful.
Advice to current and future Job Corps students: I would tell future Job Corps students not to be scared. Stay open-minded to change and be willing to grow. Accept direction and help from the staff.
