You spend four quarters in the Career Readiness program learning appropriate safety procedures, using different types of equipment, obtaining skills, and using projects and career modules to help you focus on a successful program choice for your junior year.
Placement is based on the program selections from your Lorain County JVS application and current availability.
Students qualified to enroll in this program are:
- 14 years old
- Have 0 to 3 high school credits
To be considered for this program a student must have:
- A school counselor recommendation

Upon completion of the Career Readiness Program, you can apply to the 10th-grade Career Exploration Program and continue your journey with Lorain County JVS!
