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 Flatwoods Job Corps Civilian Conservation 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, Flatwoods Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center is overseen by the Philadelphia Regional Office of Job Corps and is operated by Management Training Corporation. Our Center Director is David Scholes.

Our Center's History
Like many of the Job Corps Centers located in national forests, the Flatwoods Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center began its life as a Civilian Conservation Corps camp in the 1930s. The CCC program ended with the coming of WWII, and the camp sat empty until it reopened as a Job Corps Center in 1965.

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!
