senate Bill S. 1825

Additional Oversight of the Job Corps Program

Argument in favor

Provides greater oversight of a crucial, nationwide program for at-risk youth that has been severely mismanaged.

Argument opposed

Does not go far enough to aid Job Corps or correct VA-level Department of Labor dysfunction. An advisory board is not a solution.

What is Senate Bill S. 1825?

This bill addresses Job Corps, a federal program overseen by the Department of Labor that offers at-risk young people ages 16 through 24 jobs education and training. The bill would create an advisory board to oversee the Job Corps program. Job Corps had a $60 million budget shortfall this year, and a $39 million shortfall the year prior. Due to these shortfalls, each of the 125 Job Corps centers across the country operates at 21 to 25 percent below full capacity. 


This bill impacts at-risk youth and their opportunities for learning skilled trades.
