Participants in the Barstow area have the amazing opportunity to further their education as part of the WIOA program, by obtaining their AA certificate from Barstow Community College. A personal Career Mentor will guide each student through the process of enrolling in courses and charting a course towards graduation. We will support each student with stipends as they complete the required WIOA program courses such as the Life Skills projects and Customer Service training.


We provide such needed essentials such as bus passes, gas cards, and a clothing assistance.  We may be able to help with the cost of tuition and books, depending on the given situation. 


Students will also have career counseling available to them to help identify and purse a long-term career.  Program participants will also have the opportunity to volunteer in the community, both as individuals and as a group.


 In addition to helping you hone your career-building skills, we can place you in actual Work Experience.  To learn more about Work Experience with Career Institute, click here.
