Management & Training Corporation (MTC) prepares prison inmates for re-entry into society. It provides a variety of academic, vocational, and social-skills training in rehabilitation-oriented private prisons. Its holistic education model offers programs to help inmates avoid substance abuse as they also boost their engagement in community service, find work, and increase their cognitive skills. As part of its services, MTC operates about two dozen correctional facilities in eight states, including Arizona, California, Florida, Idaho, Ohio, New Mexico, Mississippi, and Texas. The company is also a contractor for the US Department of Labor. Founded in 1981, MTC operates facilities that house some 25,000 inmates.
The company has held contracts with the US Agency for International Development, the African Development Bank, UNICEF, and other organizations. It is the largest single operator of Job Corps, a government funded job-training program for 16-to-24-year-old children and adults. The company's MTC Institute performs research into forming best practices related to addressing issues facing those who work with Job Corps youth and prison inmates. The company also provides subcontracted health care services by employing a range of medical providers, including dentists, optometrists, psychiatrists and psychologists, and physicians.
