Student Assistance Through AJC at CHEC in January

CHEC students- There may be help available to you that you might not even realize, including financial resources, transportation, child-care, and assistance with job searching. The Cookeville American Job Center (AJC) will be on the CHEC campus from January 2 to 10 from 9:30am to 2:30pm each weekday. Check to see what they may have for you. These dates are before classes start, primarily because you need to get enrolled in these programs now. Look for the AJC in the main lobby!

The AJC works with Tennessee and U.S. Department of Labor via the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).  WIOA improves access to job training and education opportunities for people who have traditionally faced barriers to employment, including individuals with disabilities, out-of-school and at-risk youth, youth in foster care or young adults who have aged out of foster care, formerly incarcerated individuals, and others.  WIOA emphasizes pursuing and obtaining post-secondary education, training and other credentials as a foundation for improving career prospects for the long-term. WIOA and the AJC also provides resources to Veterans and their families.
