Job Corps National Data Collection Project

For the U.S. Department of Labor’s Job Corps program, IMPAQ is conducting a national survey to collect information on Job Corps students’ experiences and outcomes. The Job Corps Program, a federally funded education and vocational training program for at-risk youth aged 16 through 24, provides services to approximately 60,000 youths each year at 122 centers across the country. For this project, IMPAQ is conducting more than 75,000 telephone surveys each year with former Job Corps enrollees and graduates to assess their satisfaction with the program and to collect data on their post-program employment and educational outcomes. The Office of Job Corps uses the data collected from the survey to measure program outcomes at a national level and to assess Job Corps Centers’ effectiveness.
