Since 1964, Job Corps has trained young adults ages 16-24 in the SKILLS they need to enter the workforce. It is the NATION'S LARGEST job training program, training over 60,000 students per year. A partnership with Job Corps provides your business with these unique BENEFITS:
Searching for new, qualified employees is time-consuming. When you need an entry-level employee, Job Corps will screen eligible students to give you the best possible candidates. Because Job Corps is an open-entry/exit program where students create their own training timeliness, candidates graduate throughout the year. This provides your company with the employees you need when you need them.
Training new employees takes time and money. Establish a work-based learning partnership with Job Corps, and we can customize our training programs to suit the specific needs, industry standards, and certifications of your company. Our students train on your equipment, understand your business, and are ready to make an impact upon arrival. Our service costs you nothing — saving you thousands and improving your bottom line.
A good employee has more than just knowledge about their industry and the ability to perform the work. Job Corps trains the whole person, in both employability and social skills. We want to make sure you get a great employee. That's why we drug-screen our students and provide them with follow-up services like transportation, housing, child care, etc. for up to 21 months after graduation. We do this so they can focus on their careers.
GET MORE DONE
In addition to career training, students learn employability skills such as the importance of teamwork, promptness, accountability, dependability, follow-through, and communication. These things are important to us, and they make a big difference for you.
MAKE AN IMPACT
Not only will you get a great addition to your company, you will also be making a positive difference in a young person's life. Whether your company is big or small, whether you're looking for one employee or several, Job Corps can be your workforce resource.
Most Job Corps students leave home to receive career training at one of our 123 campuses across the country. After graduation, students can relocate or pursue local employment. Nearly 82% of Job Corps graduates in the last five years were placed in education programs, the military, or fulfilling careers after graduation.
