Cleveland Job Corps Center

Kaleidoscope Show cases Cleveland Job Corps

September 30th, 2015

Cleveland Job corps Center Director, William Houston received an invitation to return to “Kaleidoscope,” a weekly public affairs program produced in partnership with the Urban League of Greater Cleveland, Kaleidoscope Magazine and News channel 5. Kaleidoscope is a community oriented program that airs on News channel 5 each Sunday from 12:30-1:00pm and is hosted by legendary News Anchor Leon Bibb. Kaleidoscope invited Houston to the show in 2012 to introduce the city of Cleveland to the new operator and center director. This time, Houston was given the platform to discuss the Job corps Program and was permitted to bring a guest. Houston brought Cleveland Job Corps Center, State Tested Nursing Assistant student Onio Mosley, 21 years old, from Garfield Heights, OH. Mosley shared with Bibb and the interviewing audience the reasons she enrolled in Job Corps and how it has affected her life. She provided a moving and passionate account of how her life was going nowhere fast without an education and why she decided to enroll in Job Corps, this past June, where she is currently pursuing her High School Diploma and State Tested nursing Assistant training. When Bibb asked Mosley “What has been the greatest gain while in Job Corps?” Mosley responded “self confidence,” to which the viewing audience gasped with empathy. After providing information on Job corps, Houston announced the upcoming Open House to be held at the Cleveland Job Corps Center at 10am on October 29, 2015. The Open House is a wonderful opportunity for the community to come and see inside the tightly secured campus and view one of the cities crown jewels for the past 50 years. The segment is scheduled to air Sunday, October 4, 2015.
