Job Corps accepting applications for training

For eligible young people ages 16 to 24, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Job Corps program provides a free education and training program that helps them learn a career, earn a high school diploma or equivalent credential and find and keep a good job. Job Corps centers began a new program year on July 1 and are accepting applications.
Job Corps students can receive hands-on training in more than 100 career fields, such as construction, business and finance, health care and information technology. The program also provides eligible, low-income students with room and board, counseling and mentoring services, living allowances and basic medical care. Students also can participate in on-the-job training at real work sites through work-based learning opportunities.
“Job Corps provides a unique opportunity for young people to launch their careers,” said Grace Kilbane, the national director for the Office of Job Corps. “Students attend academic and vocational classes, earn industry-recognized credentials, and learn critical life skills in preparation for a good job, continued education or military service. In today’s competitive employment environment, Job Corps is more important than ever, and we urge eligible youth to enroll,” Kilbane said.
