Are ALL the instructors to be trusted?

My husband went to the Job Corps. in Pine Knot, Ky for about 6 months. And he loved it, they helped him a lot. He was able to get his G.E.D. as well as his construction trade. The place was beautiful and the people there were very friendly, however that's been several years ago, but at the time they were all great and could be trusted.

There are several good job corps centers. Which one you choose could depend on what kind of training you desire. If you Google Job Corps in Kentucky you will find the web sites for all of them.
As for the original question, can all the instructors be trusted. About as much as any instructors anywhere.
Was there a specific concern?

my daughter is currently at Job Corp in Morganfield KY and it is by far THE best thing I have ever done for her. She is focused, is finishing high school and is learning a trade. This is a GREART alternative for kids who are headed down the wrong path and I wish that I could have enrolled her sooner. Be a responsible and involved parent though and find out all about the center and keep in touch with your child and with the center staff and your child's career counselor. That will help a great deal.

Personally, having visited all the Job Corps Centers in Kentucky (for my work), I like the one in Morganfield the best. It seems to be run better than the others with very interesting job skills training....like truck driving and river barge worker. Their Culinary School is fantastic and they keep placing graduates with Cruise lines.

Just make sure your daughter does report any inappropriate behavior(from an instructor) to someone. A few yrs. back,there was one that was interested in more than teaching the kids.Unfortunately,he ended up running off when the truth on him came out.Doubt if he will ever work there again,or for JC anywhere.

I went several years ago and I think it is trashy and most people there are under court order...I felt like I was in prison. Fence and all.

I know of some young bad seed kids in this town that definitely need to be court ordered there. The way some of these kids act they need to feel like they are in prison especially when the parents aren't much of role models. It is sad when parents don't know how to guide their kids in the right direction instead of the path of their own messed up lives!

There is a quasi-boot camp at Fort Knox run by the Kentucky National Guard. Takes kids (male and female) from 16 to 18. 22 week residential program, free to parents. There were several Taylor County Youth in the program. Most earn their GED while in there.
Hey Mom and Dad, need a 22 week break from your kid? Contact the National Guard recruiter or your Alterntive School Counselor. You will be amazed at what your kid can accomplish in a drug and alcohol free structured environment that is NOT JAIL.

Well,I know of a time when an instructor wasn't much of a role model...when the authorities found him out,though,he ran!! Needless to say,he no longer has that job.

So every place has people to watch out for. A concerned parent would play a role in their child life and watch for stuff that shouldn't go on in places. To begin with, if a parent was a parent to their children and not just a buddy then they chidren would not need a place like that. Too many parents thinks its cute when their kids act out in school and don't correct them. I know my child is at school to learn not to watch another student cuss, act out and throw stuff. The schools need to keep our kids safe so they need to stop giving second chances to those who don't deserve them. Send them on their way already...they aren't going to change if their parents aren't parents!

It is not just their actions in school. It starts way before school. Some of us who are older have watched kids in this town grow up. We have heard the little darling's first words. I have heard a little 2 year old give a cussing that would curl your hair. All the adults sit around and laugh. Before the kid even goes to school, he is defiant, he curses the other kids and he bullies. I have noticed there are no set bedtimes and no responsibilities. Whatever the kid does is cute and funny to the adults in his life. If he throws rocks and breaks windows of neighboring homes, they laugh because the neighbor "was a real bitch." Then when they get to school, the kid doesn't have a clue about appropriate language and behavior, and everyone expects the school to straighten him out.
I have watched this child and several others get that kind of a start at home and I wasn't surprised at all when they ended up in the A-school and then on to prison. It is kind of sad because these kids never had the chance of a snowball in hell.

Yep, Prison is the direction a lot of these kids are headed. I would just think that a parent would want their child to grow up in a better environment than they did. Come on, we live in this little town of Campbellsville suppose to be a way from all the big city violence, but these parents are allowing their children to bring it to this little city. You are right it all starts from when they are a toddler. They need to set rules and punishments and keep them enforced. What is this world coming too?

A young lady I know invited me into her house to show me something. She wanted to show me her toddler dance. She turned on the tv, opened up a video on her "on demand" and just laughed and giggled as the 18 month old "bumped and grind" to the hip-hop video. Isn't she just the cutest thing.
Not really. This 18 month should be dancing to the Wiggles, not imitating a stripper.
