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 David L. Carrasco 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.

Who We Are

David L. Carrasco Job Corps Center is overseen by the Dallas Regional Office of Job Corps and is operated by the Texas Educational Foundation. Our Center Director is John Crosby.

Our History

Our center opened in 1970 in downtown El Paso as the El Paso Job Corps Center. In 1979, the center moved to a larger five-acre campus on the east side of El Paso. In 1991, the center name was changed to honor David L. Carrasco, who served as our center's first director for over twenty years.
