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.

Im here in Guthrie job corps. The one thing I don't like from here is some of the staff still have favoritism and how its not a 0 tolerance but a case by case basis. So you still have immature little kids here smoking weed and staff don't always do something about it..

i am currently at Guthrie job corp and this place is nothing more the a backwards head up the ass fuck you over gov funded piece of shit. if you tell tem u want to leave they make u stay if u wanna stay they make u leave. staff plays favorite, its a shame your soul will b crushed day in and day out. the kids are terrible they will spread rumors faster than u can say fuck. in order for and progress to be made on your stuff u have to be a good little puppet. I have wasted 7 months of my life here learning absolutely nothing except how to lie and hide my true intentions better. when I get out of here I will be boycotting this place so fast. and encouraging others to fight and burn this place to the ground.
