Career Connect Grant

FSCJ was recently awarded a grant from the Kids Hope Alliance to establish Career Connect. Geared specifically to youth ages 16-21 who identify as low income, have barriers to traditional high school settings or have juvenile justice involvement, Career Connect will help these youth work toward completing their high school diploma, GED® or obtaining a career certification.

  • Certified Nursing Assistant
  • CompTIA A+
  • Phlebotomy
  • Welding
  • Commercial Vehicle Driving
  • Pharmacy Technician
  • Cosmetology
  • Medical Assisting
  • Facials Specialty
  • Automotive Collision Technology Technician
