  Albert Elias Residential Community Home is located in Bordentown, NJ  and is part of the Johnstone Campus.  Albert Elias is host to the JJC’s “Work Readiness Program.”  The program serves up to 18 male juveniles ranging in age from 17 and older.  The program accepts residents both on committed and probationary status that have achieved either a high school diploma or General Equivalency Diploma (GED).  Program participants are provided with the basic work and life skills deemed necessary for employment.  Participants develop occupational skills through structured learning opportunities such as work-based experiences, community service, and residential living.  The goal of this specialized program is to enable participants to be successful in the workplace and community upon transitioning home.  
  Up to twelve participants are employed at the  Department of the Treasury- (Bureau of Special Services) BOSS warehouse facility.  Monday through Friday participants work as furniture restorers and computer technicians, or assist with general warehouse needs, earning an hourly rate and certifications relating to skill acquired in the warehouse setting.  The remaining participants can work and/or attend classes allowing them to continue their education at institutions in the surrounding community and prepare to fill vacant positions at BOSS as they become available.  
  • In addition to the components of the “Work Readiness Program”, participants are exposed to alternative programs, which include, but are not limited to:
  • Life skills, including a culinary arts program, building maintenance, hygiene, health and wellness, and banking and money management.
  • Social skills curriculum, including instruction in parenting and substance abuse prevention.
  • Treatment curriculum that utilizes the Phoenix Gang Prevention modalities.
  • Job readiness classes that focus on resume writing, interview skills, appropriate dress, and conduct.
  • Post-secondary education readiness instruction that focus on the application process, SAT preparation, pre-admission testing, and student/financial aid.
  • Driver’s license preparation.
  • House meetings, individual and group counseling.
  • Individual case planning.
  • Family visits.
  • Participation in Preparation for Independence (PIP), when eligible, allowing residents to return home for increased lengths of time in order to prepare for their ultimate transition home.
