The American Job Center (AJC) network is a nationwide network of approximately 2,400 comprehensive and affiliated AJCs. It is a state and locally-driven system that reflects the long-standing and ongoing work of dedicated workforce professionals to align a wide range of publicly- or privately-funded education, employment, and training programs, while also providing high-quality customer service to all job seekers, workers, and businesses.

The Department of Labor provides funding through State Workforce Development Boards for AJCs; the State(s) then allocates to Local Workforce Development Boards (WDBs). The AJCs are operated by local Employment Service offices, community colleges, community-based organizations, and government agencies.  The AJC network includes six core programs: title I Adult, Dislocated Worker, and Youth programs; title II Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (AEFLA) programs; Wagner-Peyser Act, as amended by title III of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA); and Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) program, authorized by title I of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by title IV of WIOA, as well as other required and additional partners identified in WIOA.
