The Idaho Job Corps program serves Idaho’s youth, age 16-24 by connecting them to skills training and employment. The Idaho Department of Labor has partnered with a local community college to bring you the Job Corps program.
Currently, students can earn a high school diploma or GED while training at the College of Western Idaho to work in a growing industry. Job Corps staff will help students find the perfect career path to meet their needs.
In order to participate in Idaho Job Corps, students must:
Students can enroll in Idaho Job Corps for three months to up to 24 months, depending on the educational program and individual needs. Once admitted, students will engage in extensive career exploration and will work closely with an academic adviser who will help set up a career pathway. Each student will participate in work-based learning, life skills coaching, physical fitness and service learning.
Idaho Job Corps may provide students with meals, pay for tuition/fees, child care, clothes and in some cases transportation. Additionally, students will receive a small stipend for participating in the program.
