The Bizzell Group (Bizzell) is thrilled to have successfully supported the work of the Department of Labor’s National Office of Job Corps (NOJC). Through a set of strategic initiatives, Bizzell provided support to Job Corps by identifying and implementing web-based tools to support students’ academic growth beginning in the pre-enrollment phase and continuing while on-center.
Job Corps is the largest and most comprehensive residential education and job training program for at-risk youth, with vocational offerings in over 100 different trades in 11 major industries. The goal is to provide students with an opportunity to gain the experience and knowledge they need to begin a career or advance to higher education.
Bizzell assisted with Job Corps’ objectives by introducing new tools to be used in assessing the academic capabilities of students first entering the program, and ensuring that each student is set on a career path that is tailored to his or her knowledge and specific needs. In all aspects of the project, Bizzell worked in close coordination with NOJC, as well as other National Office support contractors, to reach project objectives and manage outcomes.
“The Bizzell team’s dedication and commitment to the success of the project was exhibited in the attention to detail and continual forward-thinking to not only get to implementation as required, but also to get to the ‘value add.'” -Curtis Massey, Workforce Development Specialist, Department of Labor.
