The program consists primarily of 123 residential centers throughout the country that provide academic and employment training to disadvantaged youth ages 16 to 24. The program's purpose is to provide these youth with the skills needed to obtain and hold jobs in in-demand industries or the Armed Forces, or enroll in postsecondary education. In addition to receiving academic supports and workforce training, the program engages youth in other services to promote their overall well-being."
