Pay and Allowances

Job Corps pays each student a living allowance twice a month while in the program. But just like a real job, taxes are deducted from this allowance.


Our center can house 300 male students and 218 female students in numerous dormitories. Each dormitory has bathroom and shower facilities, laundry facilities, TV rooms, and lounges. There are vending machines in several locations on Center.


Our students are provided three nutritious meals and an evening snack each day at no cost.

Health and Wellness Center

The Health and Wellness center is open daily for basic medical, dental, and optometrist services which are provided free to our students.
