Depending on the career area you choose and the learning pace you set for yourself. Our most successful Job Corps students remain in the program for at least 18 months to gain the knowledge and social skills needed for a new career.
Can you age out of Job Corps?
Because Job Corps is a voluntary program, students choose to enroll in the program and may exit at any time. *The maximum age limit may be waived if the applicant is a person with a documented disability.
How does Job Corps work?
The program helps eligible young people ages 16 through 24 complete their high school education, trains them for meaningful careers, and assists them with obtaining employment. Job Corps graduates either enter the workforce or an apprenticeship, go on to higher education, or join the military.
Can I bring my phone to Job Corps?
Can I bring my cell phone with me? Every center has their own rules about what devices are and are not allowed, and most centers that allow cell phones restrict their use to designated areas. Check with your admissions counselor to learn the cell phone policy at your center.
