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 86 male students and 64 female students within our four dormitories. Each dormitory has bathroom and shower facilities, laundry facilities, TV rooms, and lounges.

The dormitories also include LCD televisions with cable TV service, DVD players, and computers with Internet access and academic training software. Microwave ovens, vending machines with snacks and beverages, and pay phones are also available.

Each dormitory also has several rooms designated for the Leadership and Student Government Association students which have cable TV service in those rooms.


Our students are provided three nutritious meals each day at no cost in one of the best cafeteria facilities in Job Corps.

Wellness Center

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.
