U.S. Department of Labor's Job Corps
Job Corps is the nation's largest federally funded career training and education program for economically disadvantaged youth ages 16 through 24. Each year, Job Corps trains more than 60,000 students in more than 100 career technical areas at 124 centers across the nation. MINACT
is contracted by the federal government to operate a number of the centers and to provide support services to
thousands of students.
Job Corps students receive hands-on training in high-growth career areas, including health care, construction and technology. They can also participate in on-the-job training at real work sites. In the academic classroom, students have the opportunity to earn a high school diploma, GED or college credit, and learn employability and independent living skills.
Most Job Corps centers are residential, and students receive housing, meals, basic medical care and biweekly living allowances while enrolled.
Job Corps graduates also receive transitional support services, including help locating housing, child care and transportation, for up to 18 months after they leave the program.
