FREE Job Skills and Readiness Training
GUARANTEED Job Placement in a High-Demand Career Field!
Our Career Boot Camp is an innovative, intensive program designed to teach the skills and provide the training needed to work in a high-demand career field. The Career Boot Camp is a combination of class time and work site tours. (Transportation to and from work site tours is provided.) Classes are facilitated by ULN Career Specialists, community educators, and employer partners who are looking to hire.
Who Should Participate?
The Career Boot Camp was specifically designed to help people who are unemployed, underemployed or simply desiring a career change. You might not be aware of the things preventing you from obtaining and retaining employment. Our Career Specialist will address your unique needs and barriers and support you during class and even after you graduate.
You’ll receive the following supports after you enroll in the Career Boot Camp:
- Work and Life Skills Assessment
- An Individualized Success Plan
- A $75 stipend every week you’re enrolled.
- And so much more.
How much to we believe in your success? Most Career Boot Camps participants become employed immediately after graduating and some even become employed before graduation.

Each Career Boot Camp session is 3 weeks long, Monday thru Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Multiple sessions are held throughout the year, but each one is limited to the first 20 qualified applicants.
