At Muhlenberg 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.

To help achieve this, Muhlenberg Job Corps Center is overseen by the Philadelphia Regional Office of Job Corps and is operated by Insights Training Group, LLC. Our Center Director is Eric Jones.

Our Center's History
Ground broke for the Muhlenberg Job Corps Center in 1973. The center began accepting students in 1974. At that time three buildings were built for less than a half million dollars. The Center started as an all-male center, females were accepted in 1979. Muhlenberg was a heavy equipment operators center only for many years. In 1974, the center educated 82 students and employed 14 staff. In 2014, 41 years later, the center housed 343 students and employed 140 staff. The center has served over 16,000 students since 1973, and currently contributes approximately 6 million back to the local economy.

The jury is no longer "out" on the Job Corps. The verdict has been rendered, and the verdict is "well done" -- "well done" U.S. Congress, "well done" U.S. industry, U.S. labor, U.S. philanthropy, U.S. taxpayers, U.S. workers!
