Job Corps training centers are the nationwide locations where Job Corps participants learn technical career skills. Job Corps has 125 locations, each slightly different. The training centers typically offer dorms for students to live in, much like a college campus.
Job Corps centers provide career and life skills training for low-income individuals from ages 16 to 24. The centers offer training in over 100 career areas, mostly technical in nature, such as information technology, health care, automotive repair, manufacturing and construction. Students who haven't earned a high school diploma have the chance to earn a diploma or a GED. The training centers also provide students with social, independent living and employment skills.
