GED/High School Diploma
One of our top goals at Hubert H. Humphrey Job Corps is to ensure that every qualified student obtains his or her GED/high school diploma prior to leaving the center. Students who don't already have a high school diploma upon their arrival at Hubert H. Humphrey can enroll in our GED school program. Students may also participate in our high school diploma program which is paid for by the center.
Leadership Training Program
The Leadership Training Program is modeled after city government and provides a basic overview of government, committees, meetings, and town hall gatherings so students can develop their leadership skills. To qualify for this training program, students must show they are mature and have leadership potential. The program itself takes place after school hours but is open to all our students.
Tutoring programs are available where students are tutored in math, reading, social studies, and writing by instructors or by fellow students (Peer Student Tutors). Students interested in getting into a tutoring program may contact their instructors or the Academic Manager.
Our students have the opportunity to attend college through our center's Advanced Career Training (ACT) program. To be eligible for the ACT program, a student must have been at our center for at least six months, have completed a career technical training program, and earned a GED or high school diploma. Our center offers a wide range of advanced diploma, certificate, and associate's degree programs through Minneapolis Community and Technical College, St. Paul Technical College, Century College, and Inver Hills Community College.
Benefits of the College Program include:
- academic advisement, mentoring, and tutoring
- paid tuition, fees, books, and supplies
- housing and recreation
- meals provided by Job Corps, on-and-off center
- transportation to and from college of choice
