OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Hourly Amazon employees in Kansas now have access to nationally recognized education opportunities at Johnson County Community College (JCCC) through Amazon’s Career Choice program. Eligible full- and part-time employees can choose from over 100 one- and two-year degree and certificate programs offered by JCCC.

“We’re excited to be an education partner for Career Choice and welcome Amazon employees into the Cavalier community,” said Dr. Andy Bowne, JCCC President. “Our students come from all walks of life, returning to college or attending for the first time. JCCC’s partnership provides Amazon employees the high-quality education that launches thriving career opportunities.”

Amazon’s Career Choice program is an education benefit that empowers employees to learn new skills at no cost. After 90 days on the job, eligible employees can apply for the JCCC program of their choice, with tuition, books and fees paid for by Amazon.
