This document reports the oral and written testimony of witnesses who appeared before a House of Representatives hearing centered on the accomplishments of the Job Corps and the need for a new Job Corps center in Fresno, California. (The Job Corps is a 25-year-old program that trains disadvantaged youth and places them in jobs.) Witnesses, who included federal and local officials, and business and union representatives, testified that the Job Corps has had a long record of accomplishments and that having a Job Corps center in Fresno would be good for the area, which has a high dropout and youth unemployment rate. They strongly urged the establishment of a Job Corps center in the city. (KC)
