Camden Corps Plus

Innovative initiative connecting Camden City youth with job opportunities. 

Over the course of one year, youth will have an opportunity to receive stipends while working towards completing their high school diploma and getting on the job training. Participants can enroll in college classes and receive occupational training in one of six areas, providing the opportunity to obtain industry recognized credentials. The six areas include:

  • Website Design
  • Certified Nursing Assistance
  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Culinary Arts
  • Carpentry Construction
  • Cisco Networking

To support the youth, Camden Corps Plus offers mentoring and stipends for community service activities, job sampling, and paid internships.  Case management, support services, job placement assistance, and meaningful work experience are all components of the Camden Corps Plus program.

Members who successfully complete all program components will receive an NJ-endorsed high school diploma.
