Why not give it a try?

We are ready for YOU! Our campuses are sanitized, prepped, open for new students … and we’re still looking for more ways to keep your health and safety as our top priority. With virtual enrollment, students can complete the first 60 days of orientation and career prep courses online, then join us on campus after!

With over 120 campuses across the United States, Job Corps provides free career training and education. Here, students get the experience they need to begin a career or apprenticeship, or advance to higher education. Some graduates even join the military. The best part? It’s free.

There are a few eligibility requirements to meet before you can start training at Job Corps. For example, you should be a low-income 16–24 year old, and a U.S. citizen (or lawfully admitted permanent resident alien, refugee, asylee, or other immigrant who has been authorized to work in the United States). Connect with an admissions counselor to learn more about income eligibility, but you may qualify if you receive SNAP, TANF, free or reduced school lunch, or if you are homeless or a foster youth. Sound like you? See if you’re eligible at JobCorps.gov/recruiting/student-eligibility-quiz.

It is! Job Corps is completely free of cost. All you have to do is show up, work hard, and be ready to succeed.
