In January of 1964, Lyndon B. Johnson introduced programs to provide education, health, jobs and economic opportunities to those who economically disadvantaged. Job Corps is one of the many programs established under his “War on Poverty.” In this paper, I will be looking at the relevant areas of research studying the impacts of Job Corps on participants and society. I will also evaluate the effects of the existing economic situations within the county on the earnings and job placement of the participants.
