(NAPSI)—For many young people, traditional paths to successful careers do not always take a straight, well-marked line.

The expense of college, family turmoil, economic hardship and other unexpected events can alter a young person’s plans. To increase the opportunities available for all young people, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the bill that created the Job Corps 50 years ago.

As the nation’s only federally-funded, residential job-training program for disadvantaged youths aged 16 to 24, it has helped more than 2.7 million young people. At more than 120 Job Corps centers across the country, students are trained in more than 100 occupations-from culinary arts to health care, and from advanced manufacturing to information technology. They can earn a high school diploma or GED. Heavyweight boxing champion and entrepreneur George Foreman is a Job Corps graduate.
