About Us:
Tongue Point Job Corps Center is operated by Management & Training Corporation (MTC) for the U.S. Department of Labor. Located at the mouth of the Columbia River, the Center is one of the five largest employers in Clatsop County. We teach ages 16-24, who have made the decision to come to Job Corps in order to improve their lives. Every staff member is part of teaching the students the academic, technical training, employability, and social skills they need to become prepared for successful careers.

A Job Corps campus is like a mini-city. It has dormitories, classrooms, a dining hall and recreational and medical facilities. Training is open entry, open exit, and can last up to two years. Students work at their own pace, guided by academic and career training instructors who are committed to their success.

Tongue Point offers students training in 12 vocations. We are the only Job Corps Center in the nation with a seamanship program, and seamanship is the Center's largest vocation.

Tongue Point Job Corps Center is a drug-free workplace and a tobacco-free campus. Due to being a federally-funded program, all successful applicants must pass a drug-screen, including being negative for THC/marijuana.
