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 Joliet 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, Joliet Job Corps Center is overseen by the Chicago Regional Office of Job Corps and is operated by Adams and Associates, Inc.. Our Center Director is Christine Sanchez.

Our Center's History
The Joliet Center sits on 59 acres on what was previously the site of the Joliet East High School, which closed in 1983. Soon after the high school closed, the structures were used for a new Job Corps site. Today, the Joliet Job Corps is consistently rated one of the top-performing centers in the country.

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!
