Newton. Enrollment for the next session of the New Jersey Youth Corps program at Project Self-Sufficiency is underway. The 16-week program launches in March as a hybrid of virtual and in-person curricula and activities.

The corps gives those who have not completed high school the opportunity to boost their literacy skills, prepare for the high school equivalency exam, obtain on-the-job work experience, and transition into a career, college or the military. Interested participants are invited to attend a virtual open house to learn more and complete an application. Virtual open houses will be held at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 16, and at noon on Thursday, Feb. 18.

Participants must be Sussex or Warren County residents age 16 to 25 who have not completed high school. Program participants will prepare for the high school equivalency examination and have the opportunity to receive a weekly stipend based on attendance for the full week. Free transportation is provided.

Project Self-Sufficiency is offering a $100 gift card to those who refer a young adult upon the young adult’s completion of the two-week orientation and induction into the program.
