MTC is the top performing Job Corps contractor with five or more centers. All Job Corps centers are rated monthly by the Job Corps national office on student outcomes in areas such as: GED and high school diploma attainment, career technical training, literacy, numeracy, initial placement, and average wage. MTC-operated centers consistently earn impressive results in every category. Our performance results are as follows:
- MTC is proud of its students’ scholastic achievements, as reflected in the Job Corps OMS-10R Center Report Card for the program year 2010, beginning July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011. Out of 125 Job Corps centers operating throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, MTC operates, or partners in operating, nine of the top 25 centers.
- Nearly 5000 MTC Job Corps students earned their GED or high school diploma in the year 2011. Additionally, 8455 students completed a career or vocational trade during that time.
- MTC believes even the best education becomes more valuable when it leads to productive employment. Providing students career opportunities with successful industry employers is another key priority for all MTC centers. There were more than 8100 students placed in quality jobs, higher education or the military after completing their Job Corps program for the year 2011.
- MTC Job Corps staff members and students spend much of their free time bettering their communities by performing service projects. Students and staff from all MTC Job Corps centers routinely perform approximately 150,000 community service hours each year. Because volunteerism is currently valued by the Bureau of Labor Statistics at $20.25 per hour, this means MTC centers save their communities more than three million dollars every year.
- In addition to offering their own high quality training, MTC Job Corps centers are also very active in providing students with opportunities to further their education after leaving their center. MTC Job Corps centers have strong partnerships with 71 higher education institutions. At any given time, more than 500 students are enrolled at these schools.
