Job Corps is a free Career Technical Training program that is federally funded for 16-24 year-olds. The upper age limit may be waived for a student with a verifiable disability. Some of the Career Technical Trainings are welding, carpentry, culinary arts, CNA, and many more. Students can also earn their HS diploma with us. Students stay on center, free of charge, while they work towards completion of their trade. The two centers in Maine are in Bangor (Penobscot Job Corps) and Limestone (Loring Job Corps). There are a few ways students can be eligible. They can meet the financial guidelines (food stamps, free/reduced lunch) and/or have an IEP/504.
