There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Title :
  National Job Corps Study: Characteristics of Youths Served by Job Corps
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This report describes the characteristics of eligible Job Corps applicants and compares their characteristics with those of the broader national population of disadvantaged youths. To be eligible for the program, Job Corps applicants must satisfy 11 specific criteria designed to ensure that the youths enrolled need and can benefit from additional education and training, come from debilitating environments that impair prospects for successful training in the home community, and are free of serious medical or behavioral problems. Using data from the study¿s baseline interview, the report presents the characteristics and recent experiences of eligible applicants at the point when they were determined to be eligible for Job Corps.
