Before Job Corps, Sara had graduated from high school and completed a couple of years at community college; but she didn’t know what she wanted to do. She had taken classes that weren’t suited for her personality, and she didn’t have great direction. Her roommate found out about Job Corps, and after some long conversations, they both decided to join.

Growing up in Ogden, Utah, Thaddaeus had always known about the Clearfield Job Corps Center, but never understood the impact of the program until he experienced it for himself. Before joining Job Corps at the age of 22, Thaddaeus held down a variety of odd jobs: a teacher’s assistant, customer service representative at Home Depot, and lastly a caretaker for an elderly veteran.
