  • Job Corps offers career technical training in more than 100 career areas.
  • Students receive housing, meals, basic health care, a living allowance, and training and preparation for a career – all at no cost.
  • For up to 18 months after graduation from Job Corps, students will get help from Job Corps to make the transition into the real world.
