Job corps 2013 budget

Job Corps is a program administered by the United States Department of Labor that offers free-of-charge education and vocational training to young men and women ages 16 to 24. [1]

Job Corps' mission is to help young people ages 16 through 24 (soon to be 28) improve the quality and satisfaction of their lives through vocational and academic training. [2]

Job Corps was initiated as the central program of the Johnson Administration's War on Poverty , part of his domestic agenda known as the Great Society . Sargent Shriver , the first Director of the Office of Economic Opportunity , modeled the program on the Depression -era Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). Established in the 1930s as an emergency relief program, the CCC provided room, board, and employment to thousands of unemployed young people. Though the CCC was discontinued after World War II , Job Corps built on many of its methods and strategies.
