ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – The Kane County Adult Corrections Center graduated its first Manufacturing Internship Career Program class of nine March 4, officials announced in a news release.

The program offers adults ages 18 to 24 career readiness training certifications to prepare them for today’s workforce.

“Providing vocational training and direct links to employment allows citizens to return to the community with a path out of the criminal cycle,” Sheriff Ron Hain stated in the release. “These services also stand to dramatically improve public safety and police- community relations.”

Hain identified this grant-funded opportunity operated by Business Career Services as an essential component of the jail’s new diversion programs.

Nine eligible detainees entered the program on Feb. 18 and all successfully completed the curriculum.

Upon their ultimate release from jail, Manufacturing Internship Career Program through Business Career Services will offer the graduates various intern opportunities with local employers.

The program is one of several new offerings to detainees in the jail to include: Forklift training, professional painting, small business creation, barber and cosmetology. Welding will be added this summer.

The next class will begin in May.
