DEL-JEN Inc. (DJI), an independently operating construction-related company of Fluor Corporation, has been awarded a contract to operate the Job Corps Outreach, Admissions & Career Transition Services (OA&CTS) program for the state of Ohio.
OA&CTS operates under the U.S. Department of Labor. The five-year contract’s value is more than $7 million.
DJI will recruit and assess disadvantaged youth to enroll 1,300 youth in Job Corps Centers in Ohio. After completing their training at the Job Corps Centers, graduates will be provided job search, placement and supportive services by DJI for one year to maximize their success in their chosen careers.
“This contract provides us with an expanded opportunity to offer education and training in the country’s premier residential program to disadvantaged youth in Ohio,” said Peter E. Rell, president of DJI’s Education and Training group. “Our Job Corps assignments allow us to make a real impact. Over the past 20 years of my involvement in Job Corps, I have seen so many young people turn their lives around and build a future for themselves and their families. Nothing could be more satisfying.”
