Dr. Benjamin L. Hooks Job Corps Center

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 Investment Act of 1998. For more information about the Job Corps program at a national level, please visit our Official Public Web Site.

At Dr. Benjamin L. Hooks 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

Our center first opened in 1998 as the Memphis Job Corps Center. In 2006, the center name was changed to honor Dr. Benjamin L. Hooks, a leader of the civil rights movement.
