Job Corps “Increases employment Outcomes”

The Urban Institute’s mission is to improve lives.

“We believe in the power of evidence to improve lives and strengthen communities. Public policies work best when they are rooted in facts, and our research sparks solutions in programs and practice.”

Institute Fellow Demetra Smith Nightingale recently noted the importance of the Job Corps program. She says,

“…programs showing the most positive outcomes for youth have a comprehensive set of integrated services, including education, occupational training, counseling, and support services. Residential models such as Job Corps … have been found to increase employment outcomes.”
