Consider Job Corps
As the school year comes to a close and the summer months approach, we would like to remind you that Job Corps offers open enrollment throughout the year. Often times, our youth are energized to apply in September, however we are encouraging them to take the steps to enroll in the program now! Listed below are the 3 steps towards enrollment.
Attend our Job Corps Orientation. At orientation, we will discuss the program expectations and eligibility. Our orientations are held every Wednesday at Noon our office is located at 39 State Street Suite 420. See attachment for eligibly or call 585-454-5130 if you have questions.
If it’s determined that the student is eligible, then they will be invited to interview with an admission’s counselor. During the interview, we will determine if the student is suitable for the program and complete the application. (Student’s will bring the required documents to this interview See Attachment).
Once the application is completed and we submit the application with our recommendation, the student must contact their admission’s counselor weekly to check-in. (*Please keep in mind, that the center makes the final decision on acceptance into the program, departure times vary based on the center and trade. Many center currently have openings).
Job Corps is an extraordinary opportunity for students. Our youth are critically important to the future of our local communities as well as our country. Many just need another chance to reach their full potential. We look forward to the prospect of working in collaboration with you to achieve this worthwhile goal. We are also more than happy to come to you to present to your staff and/or students/clients. Please feel free to call or email either myself of Ms. Caldwell to schedule a presentation or if you have any questions.

Love 15 is a free tennis instructional program open to any Rochester City resident from the age of 7 to17. The program is designed to teach basic tennis skills, rules, etiquette, life skills, and positive values and usually serves 200 to 300 kids every summer.
Kids who participate in the program learn a lot more than tennis. They are encouraged to read a certain amount of books per summer in order to increase literacy among the group. There is also a big-brother big-sister component of the program, where older participants are matched up with up younger ones, to install the importance of being a role model and to pass on knowledge and skill sets to those who are in need of them.
Due to the popularity of the program, there are a lot of participants that want to come back every year are encouraged to apply for the volunteer internship program (VIP). They learn safety procedures, court management, on-court teaching, professionalism, leadership and communication. Our teen students who complete this program often go on to become instructors the following year.
Our Love-15 leaders and coaches say, “This is a really special group of kids that come to this program. The students initially come to learn how to play tennis, but it also gives them a new positive network of friends for them to hang out with. Tennis is a hard sport, and you can see how they really push themselves and get a great sense of accomplishment and self-esteem once they are done. The program also produces great leaders, which is a positive benefit to the community even after the program ends.
Attached is our Love-15 registration form, if you would please pass these out to all of your students we would be honored to have them join us at any of the three locations
