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: The Impacts of Job Corps on Participants Literacy Skills
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This report presents estimates of the impacts of Job Corps on participants┬┐ literacy and numeracy skills needed to function in the workplace. It builds on the analysis and findings presented in our report on short-term impacts. That report relied on interview data collected at baseline, and at 12 and 30 months after random assignment. The current report is based on an in-person literacy skills assessment administered to some sample members in conjunction with the 30-month follow-up interview. These test score data allow us to measure the extent to which Job Corps improves the functional literacy and numeracy skills of Job Corps participants.
