Benefits

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.

Housing and Transportation

Since our center is a non-residential center, we do not offer any on-campus housing. Because our students have to commute to our campus, we do offer transportation assistance to those who qualify.

Meals

Our students are provided two 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. Weight management, smoking cessation, pregnancy prevention, and other health-related programs are also available.

  • A transition allowance of up to $1000 to assist you with transportation and housing
  • Job placement assistance for up to nine months
