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 Denison 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, Denison Job Corps Center is overseen by the Chicago Regional Office of Job Corps and is operated by Management Training Corporation. Our Center Director is Steve Reitan.

Our Center's History
The site that would become the Denison Job Corps Center began as Midwestern College, a private liberal arts college that lasted only 5 years from 1965 to 1970. In February of 1980, the old Midwestern campus became the Denison Job Corps Center and has since helped tens of thousands of students forge their own paths to success and independence. A child care center opened on the site in 1993.

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!
