dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this research is to describe Gary Job Corps graduates perceptions of program impacts. This study develops a conceptual framework that includes three impact areas: (1) job market preparation; (2) social skills preparation; and (3) future educational preparation. This study utilizes survey research to describe Gary Job Corps students’ views on these three impact areas. Overall participants felt that participating in the Gary Job Corps Program had enhanced each of the impact areas. The most positively impacted area was job market preparation. In addition, there are areas where students rate Gary Job Corps relatively low. These areas include the ability to cope with stress, diversity and cultural awareness, and academic abilities. Based upon these findings recommendations were made to enhance the Gary Job Corps Program. These recommendations include; engaging students in stress coping activities, setting goals for students, and taking a prescriptive approach to student failures to promote future academic success.en_US
