If you aren’t looking to earn college credit, but instead want to either prepare for the GED, learn English as a second language or find a hands-on, non-credit career training program like truck driving, forklift driving, dental assisting and more, this pathway is for you.

JJC's Workforce Development program offers programs and services throughout the community and at every JJC campus location.

My Future Program (Grundy County)
This program helps 17 to 24-year-olds gain workforce skills through paid internships, short-term job training, job shadowing and leadership workshops.
Grundy Workforce Services
Available to Grundy County adults of all ages, this program offers career scholarships that meet WIOA eligibility guidelines. Career development workshops and business services are provided.
College/Career Transition Services
Trained advisors will assist students as they make the transition from adult education classes to either college-level courses, a new job or the military.
Bridge classes give you an opportunity to learn new workplace skills. While the program itself does not lead to a career, it prepares students to be successful in college-level courses. Students who successfully complete the program may be eligible for a college scholarship.
