MIAMI JOB CORPS PARTICIATES IN CITY OF HOMESTEAD’S COMMUNITY JOB FAIR
Miami Job Corps Center was invited by the City of Homestead to participate in
their community’s Job Fair held at the Phichol Williams Community Center on
Saturday, May 22, 2021. “We are thrilled that Job Corps will once again
participate in this endeavor. The ultimate goal is to provide community members,
students entering the workforce, and those who have been adversely affected in
one way or another from the untimely events of this past year to gather
information and meet with potential employers in our City” stated Ana San
Roman, City of Homestead’s Economic Development Manager.
Job Corps is U.S. government residential education and job-training program for
low-income at-risk young people. Funded by Congress and administered by
the U.S. Department of Labor, Job Corps seeks to teach young people the

employment. Miami Job Corps Center, located in Miami Gardens, is actively
recruiting applicants ages 16-24 from South Dade/Homestead/FL Keys to benefit
