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: Report on Study Implementation
Release Date :
Abstract :
  The Job Corps program has been a central part of federal efforts to provide employment assistance to disadvantaged youths since 1964. The National Job Corps Study, funded by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), is designed to provide a thorough and rigorous assessment of the impacts of Job Corps on key participant outcomes. This report describes the implementation of random assignment and sample intake, presents evidence that the process was implemented in a way that will enable the study to realize its goals, and draws lessons from the experience that may be applicable to other program evaluations.
