Job Corps is the nation's largest and most comprehensive residential education and job training program for at-risk youth. Since 1964, the program has provided more than two million disadvantaged young people with the integrated academic, vocational, and social skills training they need to gain independence and get quality, long-term jobs or further their education.
Job Corps is a public-private partnership, administered by the U.S. Department of Labor. Job Corps works for everyone. It works for the disadvantaged youth who attend the program, for communities where Job Corps centers are located, for employers who hire Job Corps students. It also works for other individuals such as school educators and peer counselors who may want to refer young people to Job Corps.
