MONTGOMERY JOB CORPS CENTER. 1145 Air Base Blvd, Montgomery, AL 36108-3103. (334) 262-8883. 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). Our work-based learning (WBL) program provides students with opportunities to link their career technical training with practical, on-the-job activities. Students participating in WBL improve their work habits and attitudes, identification of goals and aptitudes, and the motivation to complete and further their education. Job Corps is committed to the development of green job training and preparing students like you for successful careers in the green economy. All students who enter the Advanced Manufacturing, Automotive and Machine Repair, or Construction training areas will develop specific knowledge and skills related to green technology and industry practices. If you choose to train in one or more of these industries, you will receive the latest training available to prepare you for this growing industry. The green workforce is here to stay, and qualified green workers will continue to be in demand for many years to come. In addition to career training, Montgomery Job Corps Center also provides academic training, including basic reading and math. Courses in independent living, employability skills, and career success skills are offered to help students transition into the workplace. We also have several academic programs to help our students achieve their full potential. Job Corps has a zero-tolerance policy for drugs and violence. The student does not require any face-to-face court or institutional supervision or court-imposed fines while enrolled.
