Job Corps is a U.S. Department of Labor education and job training program for 16 through 24 year-olds. The goal of this workshop is to educate participants on the Job Corps services available to young people who are seeking job training with limited financial resources. Attendees will explore the program from the admissions/eligibility phase through the career transition phase, learn about the origins of the program, and understand who typical Job Corps students are and how to refer them to the program.

Strong emphasis will be placed on the three options for students upon graduation: job placement, military
enlistment, and/or pursuit of higher education. Attendees will also learn more about the types of career technical training and academic courses that are offered at the 125 Job Corps centers across the country.
