With the assistance of the Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act, Vocational Career Projects provides supplemental services and activities for adults. Various projects assist adults in different areas. These include workshops for those in need of training or retraining, programs for men and women entering nontraditional occupations, assistance for single parents or displaced homemakers enrolled in vocational education, and providing guidance to displaced workers subsidized by state and federal agencies.

The Vocational Career Projects program conducts precollege orientations designed to help adults who are in the process of beginning or returning to college and provides information on admissions and registration, financial aid, degree options, child care, and numerous other college procedures.
