Job Corps Career Training

Training disadvantaged youth for career success

How we help people

Preparing America’s youth for successful careers

We are committed to improving the lives of the more than 11,000 vulnerable youth we train in our Job Corps centers. Low-income youth face many barriers to employment—learning disabilities, mental health issues, and a lack of family support. MTC’s engaged learning approach is extremely successful in providing youth with valuable academic and job skills training, so they can join the workforce and sustain themselves and their families. We tailor our education and job training to fit the needs of each student. When they graduate, they’re industry certified in a variety of fields including healthcare, construction, and automotive. They leave the program confident and ready to work. It’s amazing to see the transformations and to be a part of their lives.

My experience was great. It’s made the difference in the person that I could have been to the person that I am right now. Honestly, I don’t know what I would have done if it hadn’t been for Job Corps.
