The Wind River Job Corps Center (WRJCC) will operate under two companies starting on September 1st, 2020: Management & Training Corporation (MTC), which has operated WRJCC since its opening in 2015, and Alternate Perspectives, Inc. (API), a certified woman-owned small business.
API will be the lead contractor and MTC will serve as sub-contractor. The two companies also deliver services jointly at two other U.S. Job Corp Centers on the east coast.
“We’re excited to work together to provide the very best education and technical training at Wind River Job Corps,” said API President and CEO Dr. Jennifer Wild. “We’ve been working with MTC for more than 20 years. We have a strong synergy and are deeply committed to helping young, at-risk men and women improve their lives through career and life training.”
Every five years, the U. S. Department of Labor (DOL) puts contracts out for re-bid. In this year’s process, the DOL determined the Wind River center would pursue a small business contract. Appropriately API will be the small-business lead with MTC as the subcontractor.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the majority of Job Corps students nationwide are continuing their education through a distance-learning program. They will return to the center once the DOL deems it safe to do so.
Job Corps is a federal program administered by the DOL and operated by companies like API and MTC. You can learn more about WRCC by clicking here.
