Education & Training: Training America’s Youth

Preparing America’s youth for successful careers

MTC makes a social impact in Education & Training by providing hundreds of thousands of young adults quality education and career training so they can be successful in the job market. As these young people gain the skills they need to support themselves and their families—they become contributing, tax-paying members of society.

“Twenty-two years old and I didn’t have anything going for me. No job, no education, nothing but the clothes on my back. I have made some pretty rash decisions, but this one decision, Job Corps, was my best choice.” ~ Ashley Gillespie, Current MTC Job Corps Student

Since 1981, MTC has been teaching and training young Americans to be prepared for the workforce. This intense and highly-successful training is done through the Department of Labor’s Job Corps program. MTC trained 12,680 students in 2016.
