Assisting Job Corps Graduates on the Path to Success

 

Job Corps Graduates

MTC’s mission in Job Corps is to help young people learn job and life skills that will lead to long-term success. We also want to help our graduates deal with various challenges that might come up after they have left the Job Corps program. That’s why we created this new online resource for all MTC Job Corps graduates. We call it the Job Corps Resource Hub. Here you’ll find information and links to valuable programs that can help with housing, healthcare, food assistance, and much more. Take a look.

The first few months after leaving the Job Corps program, graduates may experience various life challenges. Our hope is to alleviate some of the stress by providing critical supports and resources in this re-entry hub to promote success for life.
