*(Fremont County, Wyo.) *- To be a student at Wind River Job Corps
, you don't have to live on
campus. You can enjoy the freedom of living at your own residence while
earning a high school equivalency or high school diploma, finding and
keeping a good job and bettering yourself.
Wind River Job Corps is currently accepting applications for
non-residential students. These applicants have the opportunity to attend
classes and receive training on campus during the weekday, while still
living at their own residence. Additionally, non-residential students are
eligible to receive all of the benefits that are offered through the Job
Corps Program, on top of a weekly allowance to help with the cost of
traveling to and from the center.
Living off campus has its perks and depending on each students situation,
it may be the right decision. "I already had a home I needed to maintain
and bills to pay," explained Charles McCoy, a non-residential, Wind River
Job Corps student.
For interested students, ages 16-24, Job Corps is hosting information
sessions at the Wind River Facility. Sessions are held every Wednesday at
11am. Orion Morris, Admission Counselor, will provide general information
and answer questions about eligibility and enrollment. Potential applicants
may tour the facility and the application process may begin immediately.
Reserve your spot in advance for the information session by calling Orion
at 307-253-7503. If you are in the Lander area, call Gloria Poston at
Wind River Job Corps , 4200
Airport Rd, Riverton, WY 82501
