Job Corps

Job Corps is the largest Free residential education and job training program for young adults ages 16–24. The Jobs Corps will work with the cities to recruit thousands of Californians between the ages of 16 and 30.

The United States Department of Labor administers the program. Job Corps graduates either enter the workforce or an apprenticeship, pursue higher education, or join the military. 

“This program will be intentional about focusing hiring on underserved populations like low-income youth, youth who are unemployed or out of school, youth who are justice-involved or transitioning from foster care or are engaged with mental health or substance abuse systems,”
