We understand that being away from family and friends can be difficult; that's why those who apply and succeed in Job Corps are truly remarkable! Life on a Job Corps center is just a matter of adjustment. You'll feel at home in no time.
In addition to the educational and career technical opportunities that Job Corps offers, there's a whole lot more:
All students on Job Corps centers receive free basic medical and dental care.
Students receive free breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks in the cafeteria each day.
Students at most Job Corps centers live on-campus in dormitories. A student typically shares a room with several roommates of the same gender. You and your roommates will be asked to keep your room clean and to help with the cleaning of the dorms.
Job Corps offers a variety of additional activities such as community service projects, arts and crafts, cultural awareness programs, field trips to area attractions (mall, movies, sporting events, concerts, etc.), intramural sports, student government, and much more.
Job Corps is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for everyone. Job Corps has a Zero Tolerance Policy against violence and drugs. Students who break this policy will be dismissed and will not be allowed to re-enter the program. Also, each Job Corps center has specific rules and regulations for maintaining the safety and security of our students and staff.
