New Jersey Youth Corps 

of Phillipsburg

The New Jersey Youth Corps of Phillipsburg is Warren County's only full-time service and conservation corps.  Founded in May of 1998, we provide municipal support to the Town of Phillipsburg while providing hundreds of youth the opportunity to earn their GED while providing a valuable service to their community. 


Funded through the New Jersey Department of Labor & Workforce Development, the Youth Corps is a 'second-chance' program for young adults aged 16-25 that did not complete high school.  Through a balance of academics and Service Learning, we provide the foundation upon which to build a brighter future. Through this website, you will learn all you need to know about the NJYC of Phillipsburg.

Academics

New Jersey Youth Corps staff design individual education plans for each member. Members spend half their time in classes geared to helping them earn a GED (General Educational Development). In class, they work in large and small groups and receive individual assistance as necessary. Instruction is also incorporated into their community based Service Learning  projects.



A three-pronged approach to a brighter future:


The New Jersey Youth Corps has Corps members participate in community based Service Learning Projects. The projects fulfill an unmet need in the community and provide controlled, supervised work situations th​at allow Corpsmembers to develop the maturity and skills necessary to become a better candidate for employment.


The New Jersey Youth Corps provides on-going counseling intended to help Corpsmembers overcome barriers to personal, academic and employment success. They learn skills that will make them more employable and participate in activities designed to help them develop better self-esteem, clarify their values and develop leadership skills.
