The Job Corps is designed to move youth from poverty to meaningful work. It offers youth the key prerequisites to meaningful employment -- job training & educ.; & its program offers multiple supports including counseling, social & soft skills training, shelter, food, & comprehensive health care. Like all programs serving disenfranchised youth, it has been challenged by program attrition. This study generated a body of knowledge that can guide policymakers & program planners as they take steps to increase retention. The report's overriding premise is that dropout is a process that can be influenced. The research team used a mixed quantitative-qualitative approach.Ginsburg, Kenneth R. is the author of 'Retention in the United States Job Corps : Analysis and Recommendations', published 2002 under ISBN 9780756723781 and ISBN 0756723787.
