“One Door. Millions of Success Stories.” That’s the theme of a U.S. Department of Labor infographic describing the investment story of the American Job Center network. The 2,400 American Job Centers across the nation provide career, job search, and training services to job seekers and the unemployed under WIOA.
“In the last program year, more than 13 million Americans—roughly 1 out of every 12.5 people in the U.S. labor force—got the help they needed through the American Job Center network,” states the infographic.
Other infographic highlights for the program year include the following:
- American Job Centers serve a wide range of individuals, including displaced workers, veterans, ex-offenders, youth, victims of natural disasters, workers with disabilities, and older workers.
- 81 percent of people who received job training found employment.
- 156,000 people with disabilities found work.
- 98,500 adults and dislocated workers obtained a credential.
- 360,000 unemployed military veterans got hired.
- 2.6 million people receiving unemployment insurance obtained jobs.
