Early in 2021, Middlesex College received an $85,000 grant from the Rutgers Community Health Foundation (RCHF) to help adult learners in New Brunswick consider a health career. This program was soon extended to include North Brunswick and Somerset.
These free bootcamps are offered several times throughout the year, so students are never far away from the next class. The first Bootcamp was offered in September 2021, each one lasts three-to-four-weeks. The students receive ongoing support from the program advocate who addresses challenges in transportation, technology, childcare and for their need to improve their English language skills. At the end of each bootcamp, a Middlesex College team is on site to provide information on careers, future training, financial aid and scholarship opportunities.
Students who successfully complete the bootcamp can apply for scholarships which pay for training as a phlebotomist, medical assistant, community health worker, EKG technician, public health worker and other health-related careers.
If you or someone you know wants to take advantage of the Free Bootcamp on Health Careers, start by attending any of the upcoming information sessions.
Information sessions about the Free Bootcamp on Health Careers are held at Middlesex College’s New Brunswick Center every week. For more information, including registration, visit Pathways Into Health Careers.
