Support Letter for Job Corps Civilian Conservation Centers
Job Corps is a federally-funded vocational program for low-income youth and young adults. Among the more than 100 Job Corps residential centers across the country, 25 locations –known as Job Corps Civilian Conservation Centers (JCCCs) – are operated by the U.S. Forest Service (USFS). The JCCCs are based in rural communities and primarily focus on training participants for forestry and conservation-related careers.

On Friday, May 24, 2019, the USFS and U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) announced that, by the end of September 2019, nine JCCCs will close and management of the remaining 16 sites will be transferred to contract operators or other partners.

As a result of these changes to the JCCCC program, more than 1,000 federal employees will lose their jobs and the more than 4,000 JCCC students will experience a disruption in their education and job training.
