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 Shriver 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, Shriver Job Corps Center is overseen by the Boston Regional Office of Job Corps and is operated by Alternate Perspectives, Inc.. Our Center Director is Melissa Graf.

Our Center's History
The Shriver Job Corps Center has been in operation since 1996. The center was named after Sargent Shriver, the driving force behind the creation of Job Corps, Head Start, the Peace Corps, and other programs during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations.

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!
