About Us

What We Do

Job Corps is a no-cost education and career technical training program administered by the U.S. Department of Labor that helps young people ages 16 through 24 improve the quality of their lives through career technical and academic training. The Job Corps program is authorized by Title I-C of the Workforce Innovation 
and Opportunity Act of 2014 (supercedes WIA 1998)
. For more information about the Job Corps program at a national level, please visit our Official Public Web Site.

At Trapper Creek Job Corps Center, we support the Job Corps program's mission of teaching eligible young people the skills they need to become employable and independent and placing them in meaningful jobs or further education.

Our History

Trapper Creek was originally a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp set up during the 1930s. During President Lyndon B. Johnson's administration, many former CCC sites became Job Corps centers. As such, Trapper Creek opened as a Job Corps center in January 1966. Our center was a males-only center until 1980 when it became a co-educational facility.
