The U. S. Department of Labor runs a nationwide program of job training for American youth in Job Corps Training Facilities that incorporate classrooms, shops, residential buildings, recreation facilities, offices, healthcare centers, and dining halls. These self-contained environments are aimed at training students who may not have been successful in a traditional academic high school program or who have graduated from high school and seek vocational training for a variety of career paths.

Hartford was selected for a new eight building, 87,000-square-foot-facility by the Department of Labor on 23 acres of land. The Department of Labor wanted to provide productive skills to the City's youth who do not successfully complete high school. It is important to have students feel that they are part of a "community of learners" and the campus setting is a key to creating that sense of community, as well as fostering a post-high school atmosphere in which students are expected to act as responsible and independent young adults.

As a "hands-on" type-training environment, the use of a somewhat industrial palate of materials was chosen as an appropriate idiom. The materials needed to be durable and cost-effective. The eight building campus of primarily one story structures (the dormitory is the only two story building) was built of concrete block and metal wall panels. Sloped insulated metal roofing panels were used at the main entrance. Operations by Educational Management Corporation began in the Fall of 2005.
