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 Hawaii 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, Hawaii Job Corps Center is overseen by the San Francisco Regional Office of Job Corps and is operated by Management Training Corporation. Our Center Director is Ellen May.

Our Center's History
The Hawaii Job Corps Center is located on the former Bellows Air Force Station, an important airfield during World War II that was initially established in 1917 as the Waimanalo Military Reservation. Job Corps moved to that site in September of 1995. Prior to that, the Hawaii Center had been located at Koko Head since 1965.

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!
