Job Corps was established in 1964 and is the nation’s largest residential educational and career training program for at risk youth ages 16 through 24. With 121 centers in 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, Job Corps is primarily a residential program with a small non-residential component. The program annually serves approximately 45,000 young men and women, nationally as mandated by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), DOL regulations, and Job Corps rules. Oversight of Job Corps centers is provided by six regional offices located in Boston, MA; Philadelphia, PA; Atlanta, GA; Chicago, IL; Dallas, TX; and San Francisco, CA. Job Corps’ primary mission is to provide young adults with the tools necessary to attain meaningful jobs that lead to career growth.
Each Job Corps center has allocated a health and wellness area that is staffed to provide basic medical care to the student population. The Job Corps health and wellness program’s primary objective is to increase each student’s employability by establishing and maintaining the student at his or her optimal health level, along with preventing accidents and injuries. This is accomplished through providing and coordinating health care including case management of chronic illness, promotion of self-management of health care, and through preventive health education to instill good wellness habits and prevent avoidable illness, injury and death.
