Adult Education and Literacy ProgramsIn July 1991, Education and Training Resources was awarded its first education and training contract with the Barren River Area Development District, in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The contract was designed to provide outreach and recruitment services, GED training, basic education skills training, employability skills training, job placement, and follow-up services to 50 disadvantaged persons located in a high unemployment, rural, multi-county area in South Central Kentucky.

Today, ETR is the current prime contractor and operator of the Turner Job Corps Center (Albany, Georgia), Iroquois Job Corps Center (Medina, New York), Oneonta Job Corps Academy (Oneonta, New York) and the Hartford Job Corps Academy (Hartford, Connecticut). In our partnership with the U.S. Department of Labor and Office of Job Corps for the management and operation of these residential centers, ETR employs over 750 full-time staff and serves approximately 3,000 youth and young adults each year.
