The Fantasy of Lights is a crucial event providing funding to Blue Jacket. Proceeds go directly to two things; 1) the operations of the event and 2) our Career Academy training. This innovative 2-week, 40-hour pre-employment training prepares anyone with a barrier to employment for work. Blue Jacket is on target to graduate 300 clients in 2016 and recently posted a 92% employment rate, the highest ever.
