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 172 male students and 183 female students in several dormitories. Each dormitory has bathroom and shower facilities, laundry facilities, TV rooms, lounges, and vending machines.
Our students are provided three nutritious meals each day at no cost in one of the best cafeteria facilities in Job Corps.
The wellness center is open daily for basic medical, dental, and optometrist services which are provided free to our students. The wellness center also provides 24-hour emergency medical services. Weight management, smoking cessation, pregnancy prevention, and other health-related programs are also available.
Children of eligible non-residential students may receive free developmental day care at our on-campus child care facility. Child care is provided by a partnership between our center and Head Start.
Our center operates the child care center's infant facility, which has an eight child capacity. Head Start operates the early childhood component for up to 16 toddlers, as well as the pre-school that is licensed for 45 children. Only Job Corps students are eligible to use the infant facility, and our students receive priority enrollment for the toddler and pre-school Head Start services.
This partnership also eases our graduates' transition into the workforce. Graduates can retain Head Start childcare for up to two years after leaving our center.
As a Job Corps graduate, you will have a positive outlook and be qualified and prepared for today's professional workplace. Additional graduate benefits include:
- A transition allowance of up to $1000 to assist you with transportation and housing
- Job placement assistance for up to nine months
