Change Course CEO, Joseph Johnson’s testimony
Leaders apply and are accepted into a six-month-long program broken into three phases.
The first 6 weeks of the program is dedicated to personal and professional growth. We don’t just want Leaders to land a job—we want them to be the best version of themself, so they can find a career that lasts!
Leaders work to complete a professional certification or pre-apprenticeship course in their selected career track.
LAND THE JOB
Once Leaders complete the certification stage, they graduate the program by landing a job in their career track. We’ll work to connect them with employers and jobs that fit their skill set.
