Nationwide mismanagement of Job Corps calls for action!

More Federal Contractor fraudulent practices

In addition to overseeing Job Corps Centers, Management and Training Corporation (MTC) also has contracts with the Federal Government to run “fee for service” prisons.

The following is a link to a copy of a letter Project on Government Oversight (POGO) sent to MTC’s corporate office in order to verify the amount of money MTC  has had to pay for legal settlements.  Read letter here:

This amount is only the tip of the iceberg and does not include the massive fines MTC has had to repay the government for manipulation of its Job Corps numbers in order to inflate center performance.  All of that information is contained in yearly Office of the Inspector General reports.

I worked at Kittrell Job Center when it was owned by MTC and experienced numbers inflation first-hand. I was required to attend two-hour daily “retention meetings”  this is where management moved students around like pieces on a chess board in order to enhance the numbers and reflect the center in the best light.

The government continues to award MTC contracts year after year. Right now MTC operates:

Brunswick Job Corps Center,

Clearfield Job Corps Center

Gary Job Corps Center

Cincinnati Job Corps Center

Dayton Job Corps Center

Dennison Job Corps Center

Flint Hills Job Corps Center

Paul Simon Chicago Job Corps Center

Cascades Job Corps Center

Hawaii Job Corps Center

Inland Empire Job Corps Center

Maui Job Corps Center

Sierra Nevada Job Corps Center

Tongue Point Job Corps Center

Deleware Valley Job Corps Center

Westover Job Corps Center.

    Many of your news articles are old, at least one year or more. I would wonder what axe you have to grind against Job Corps. Where is your facts on how much good the program has done. I know a lot of people who have gone through the program and are now making a good wage and paying taxes and not in jail or on welfare. Where is your information on that?
