North Texas Job Corps Center


August 7th, 2019

North Texas Job Corps graduate Jonathan Boldes completed his Cement Masonry training and then enrolled in the advanced cement masonry program at the Gary Job Corps located in San Marcos, TX.   Jonathan was very excited about following in the footsteps of other North Texas Job Corps graduates who took their job training to the next level by enrolling in an advanced training program.  Jonathan stated that “Job Corps has prepared me with the skills and mindset for the next chapter in my life and training.  I enrolled and completed the trade of cement masonry as well as participated in leadership and sports, especially flag football.  Job Corps taught me to slow down and be patient. I let the system do its job and now I have some of the tools to help me on my cement masonry career path.  My experience at North Texas Job Corps has been fun, but also challenging and eventful.”  It has also given him the solid foundation he needs to pursue a career in construction and accomplish his goals.  “I want a good job that will help put me in a position to provide for my family and myself,” he said.  “I want to raise my child, be a good father, own my own construction company, invest in stocks, and to leave a positive footprint behind my name.”

Congratulations Jonathan Boldes.
