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
