What is Job Corps
Job Corps is a voluntary career training and education program that was authored by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964 as part of his “Great Society” agenda and “War on Poverty”. Today, with 125 centers across the United States, Job Corps provides technical training in more than 11 key industries. Students who exceed academic and behavioral standards are eligible for advanced Job Corps training programs.
Since Job Corp’s inception more than 60,000 young people have been trained in 90 industry-recognized certifications or apprenticeship programs. Success is measured in outcomes. Over the past 5 years, nearly 85% of Job Corps graduates were placed into additional education programs, the military, or successful careers.
