Job Corps is the nation's biggest residential job training program. Job Corps was founded in 1964 as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson's Great Society legislative agenda and has serviced over 2 million individuals.
Job Corps students get a range of educational and training opportunities. They may get a high school certificate or GED while also receiving technical training in rapidly increasing industries such as health care, information technology, energy, and transportation. Tuition is free and paid for by the taxpayers.
Job Corps also offers free housing and board, health care, a modest living stipend that grows with the length of the program, and job placement aid.
Although the majority of Job Corps locations are residential, several enable students to travel to lessons. You may be able to start the program online as well.
