Tongue Point Job Corps Gave This Young Lady a Second Chance

Published March 23, 2020

“I’m here.” Student Maya Howe says referring to her career choice to enroll in the electrical program at the Tongue Point Job Corps Center in Oregon. “I’m actually building a strong foundation for my future—finally.”

We asked her what changed?

“I got sick of working dead-end jobs that I’m not going to go anywhere with, places where there wasn’t any room for improvement; minimum wage, just struggling to get by. A couple of my friends came here, some years back, and it worked out for them really well. They’re successful, and their stories are inspiring to me.”
