Hello Partners:

HUD and the Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration (ETA) are working collaboratively to ensure that HUD providers are aware of the education and workforce training opportunities potentially available to your clients, especially in the Office of Job Corps. Please join us for an informational webinar on the Job Corps Program and how it could provide additional resources or augment existing services for your organization to benefit the clients you serve. This will be the first of three webinars on opportunities available to different target audiences – youth and adult. The information on the first webinar is below.

Job Corps is the nation’s largest career technical training and education program for young people ages 16 through 24.  Students can earn a high school diploma, a high school equivalency credential, or college credits through Job Corps.  Job Corp also offers career technical training in more than 100 career areas. Students receive housing, meals, basic health care, a living allowance, training, and preparation for a career, all at no cost. Additionally, for up to 21 months after graduation, a career transition counselor will help your student make the transition from Job Corps into the real world.
