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. Students will receive a W-2 at the end of each year.
Our center can house 350 male students and 200 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 along with an evening snack. Meals include a wide variety of items and a fully loaded salad bar. Our center cafeteria also offers "healthy choice" items at meal time.
The wellness center is open weekdays 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.
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
