Job Corps is a free education and training program that helps young people prepare for careers, earn high school diplomas or GEDs, and find and keep good jobs. Job Corps does not yet offer a wealth of green-collar training, but many local Job Corps centers are looking to add green-collar jobs training. Ask your local center if it provides such training. If it doesn’t, encourage it to start.
When choosing a training program, it is important to find one that is connected to employment opportunities and is not too expensive. The most important thing is getting steady work once you complete your program.
