Job Readiness / Training

The foundation of Mid-Atlantic States Career and Education Center’s mission is to provide career and job skill development along with a network of employers for disadvantaged, disabled workers, unemployed, and ex-offenders to provide full-time permanent employment opportunities. Mid-Atlantic accomplishes this goal through the many programs that it offers.


Parolee Employment Placement

The Parolee Employment Placement Program (PEPP) is a grant-funded program through the State of New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development serving:




Strengthening American Families and Reducing Incarceration
This is a multi-faceted program to assist ex-offenders and their families upon release from incarceration. The program operates in Salem, Cumberland and Gloucester counties.

Youth Programs

The Mid-Atlantic States Youth Exploring Careers Program seeks to build both personal and job readiness skills with in-school youth ages 16 through 21 and out-of-school youth ages 16 to 24 in Salem County. Youth are provided with both classroom and workplace experiences to prepare for rewarding and high-paying careers in the food, retailing and manufacturing sectors. Youth will be prepared to succeed in life through independent life skills, job skills and job placement.

Mid-Atlantic Career and Education Center has announced plans for the development of a new innovative low-impact sustainable farming approach that provides a model that is eco-friendly by minimizing use of energy, water and plant nutrients to produce specialty and ethnic crops.

Community Outreach

Mid-Atlantic States Career and Education Center believes in the potential of people, and takes to heart its mission to provide disadvantaged people with the tools and resources they need to improve their quality of life.

We also know that this assistance moves beyond the individual to the health of the family as well. We know that to do our job successfully, we have to have a broader vision that encompasses the community. Mid-Atlantic’s Community Outreach endeavors span across county boundaries and touches those in need in many capacities, specifically focusing on our youth and elderly populations.
