Employer Partnerships

The Laredo Job Corps Center has a long and trusted history with all of our valued Employer Partners. Without the help of the  employers who hire our Laredo Job Corps students, we wouldn’t be able to continue the training, growth and positive outcomes we experience today.

Thanks to all of our Employer Partners and we look forward to many more years of committed partnerships
