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 Columbia Basin Job Corps Civilian Conservation 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, Columbia Basin Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center is overseen by the San Francisco Regional Office of Job Corps and is operated by U.S. Forest Service. Our Center Director is Karl Lester.

Our Center's History
The Columbia Basin Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center opened in 1965, one of 88 centers opened during the program’s first year, and has been unlocking great futures for thousands of students ever since.

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!
