I was sure hoping it had changed after 29 years. Sounds like it hasn't. I've got a lot of good memories from there though. None of them seem to involve education though. Lol Is there any ex job corpers from there still around?

I am just curious. What exactly did you see with your 'own two eyes' that indicated there is a bunch of criminals there? I am trying to figure out if you have facts or just your opinion?

Job Corps has gotten alot stricter than it was 20+ years ago. Yes it can be an alternative to jail, but mess up one time and to jail you go. I have a lot of good memories of Guthrie Job Corps. Wish it had been more strick then though. Lol

I went to gjcc back in 98-99 I graduated two trades and got my ged. I went their to try and have a better life for my son and myself, there were alot of bs due to immature people and other than that it was great. I enjoyed having friends and people to talk to and the staff was great!! I wish I could of stayed longer but I needed my son.. if I didn't decide to go I don't know where I would be now.

Graduated from GJCC in '89. What a sewer!! Wackenhutt ran the show back then. I learned absolutely nothing and saw it mainly as a babysitting operation for poor minorities and troubled youth. It is and still is a TOTAL waste of the taxpayers funds. If you are white avoid it.

I'm currently enrolled. All I can say is this, there are some stark improvements that can be made. They've cracked down, yes, but they also have started to treat us as children. Honestly, I'm about ready to quit.

Ha ha...I went in 1989, scared little white girl. But you know what? I grew up, I learned. No one ever messed with me...I wasn't a victim of "white night" or any of that. If anything I excelled. Because I came from a nothing small town. i wouldn't be where or who I am today if I hadn't have gone. Wouldn't trade it for anything. Graduated in 1990 from there.
