A representative of the Job Corps, Marcus Rolle, will visit the library in Bainbridge on Monday, August 18th to speak with both local leaders and young adults ages 16 to 24 about the services and money the Job Corps provides.
Job Corps is a Federally-funded program open to U.S. Citizens ages 16 to 24, who need financial assistance to obtain training and education.
