1. Career Training for Young Adults
We are enrolling for two different, no-cost programs starting in January that help those ages 18 to 24 build career pathways into in-demand fields. Our IT Pre-Apprenticeship program assists individuals in gaining job training in information technology. Students can earn industry certifications, benefit from a paid internship, and have direct access to apprenticeship opportunities. Our Project WOW (World of Work) program is for Philadelphia residents who did not complete high school and offers high school equivalency test preparation, hands-on skills in property maintenance and repair, industry certifications, and job placement.

2. Certifications for Those Seeking Health Care Careers
Thinking about how you can get a well-paying job in the health care field, without a degree? Through our EduConnect program, JEVS is starting a new training program in surgical sterilization in January that can be completed in just nine weeks. Graduates will have the opportunity to take the leading national, industry-recognized certification exam. This is essential to entry-level employment as a Surgical Processing Technician.
We also offer training programs in the fast-growing health care field: Clinical Medical Assistant, Medical Billing & Coding, Pharmacy Technician, and Phlebotomy Technician.
All certification trainings are offered online and include in-person labs, as well as a direct pipeline to employment with our employer partners upon completion.
3. Accelerated Education for Working Adults
Whether you want to launch a new career or advance in your current job, you can pursue a degree through JEVS EduConnect’s partnership with Peirce College in Philadelphia. This opportunity features online project-based learning, multiple degree paths (associate, bachelor’s or master’s), and in-demand courses of study. All with an affordable price tag! The main feature of this unique program is the built-in support system—a success coach—who mentors and guides students through every step of their educational journey. With rolling admissions, you can get started on enrolling and beginning the program right away.
4. Credentials in Hands-on Trades
JEVS’s career and technical education school, Orleans Technical College, is enrolling now for its hands-on training programs in the building and construction trades. Courses are offered in air conditioning, heating, refrigeration, electricity, carpentry, plumbing and building maintenance. With day or night classes available, students learn the job skills employers are looking for. They also train under experienced instructors with years of industry experience. Financial aid is available for those who qualify, making it easier for adults to afford going back to school.
