Job Corps is a no-cost education and career technical training program administered by the U.S. Department of Labor that helps young people ages 16 to 24 improve the quality of their lives through career technical and academic training. The Job Corps program is authorized by Title I-C of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 (supersedes WIA 1998). For more information about the Job Corps program at a national level, please visit our Official Public Web Site.

At North Texas Job Corps Center, we support the Job Corps program's mission of teaching eligible young people the skills they need to become employable and independent and placing them in meaningful jobs or further education.

To help achieve this, North Texas Job Corps Center is overseen by the Dallas Regional Office of Job Corps and is operated by Chugach Education Services, Inc.. Our Center Director is Tracy Robinson.

Our Center's History
The North Texas Job Corps Center opened in June of 1966 on the site of the Ashburn General Hospital (later called the Veterans Administration Hospital, McKinney). The center was originally for women only, but in the 1990s it became coeducational.

The jury is no longer "out" on the Job Corps. The verdict has been rendered, and the verdict is "well done" -- "well done" U.S. Congress, "well done" U.S. industry, U.S. labor, U.S. philanthropy, U.S. taxpayers, U.S. workers!
