Job Corps is a free education and vocational training program administered by the U.S. Department of Labor. It aims to help at-risk young people ages 16 through 24 years old prepare for successful careers.

Fluor Federal Solutions is an independent operating company of global engineering and construction firm Fluor that currently provides management services to six Job Corps locations across the country, including the Kittrell center.

The Job Corps Scholarship Program was established in 2003 to assist graduates from sites served by Fluor in pursuing higher education.
