Its all about who she surrounds herself with & socializes with. Most of the kids there are troubled, but some of them are there to do the right thing & learn. Theres no drama or trouble if u just avoid it all.

I completely agree with u Vanessa. This guy is a ignorant fool. Everyone deserves the chance to better themselves & change their life. Most of them only do the things they do to, because the influence their environment had on them. If u change their environment, they focus more on the positive things around them. I went to Job corp when I was 19 & I never caused any trouble. Neither did the crowd I associated myself with. I attended the campus in Hartford, CT. Thats the state capital & most dangerous city in that state. Even in that environment, we always did the right things. So those were all very ignorant statements from a very ignorant individual. Its all about the choices u make. Not about where you're from or where you're at.

I see alot of ignorance on this page. I graduated from job corp & I dont work in any fast food restaurant. Im a certified carpenter working for the union & making $32/hr. employed full time. So I probably make more money than most of yall. NOT all job corp students waste their opportunities to become properly educated. NOT all job corp students are criminals. Most of u guys sound equally ignorant as the trouble making students u guys are so fast to judge. Its easy for some wealthy guy from upstate NY to judge troubled city teens. Because he was born into a better life & never worked hard for anything in his life. Hes also never experienced anything. At least some of the graduates, like myself worked hard to achieve what we have today. We didnt have wealthy parents that gave us everything or wiped our asses for us.

Whoa! I think I'm dizzy now Lol.

Does anyone happen to know why the job corp rep who did my sons orientation keeps rescheduling, stalling his enrollment appts? Is this a commen thing they all do to see who really 'wants' to go or what? If so, it sure is not fair for the parents to play this little game of bs, just be real - straight up.

As a former student I have to say I hated most of my time there. It's strict, supremely structured, and being the second to youngest on campus didn't help me much. And while it's true that many of the people that go there could be described as 'low lifes' that's why they're there (it DEFINITELY can be a rough crowd)...to better themselves. I have to say I definitely didn't leave empty handed from the experience, i walked away with my drivers license, GED, a certificate for medical assisting and $1000 for completing the program (not accounting for the weekly allowance they give you of what i believe was 25$ a week). Long story short yes it's unpleasant, but its not there to be fun its there to help you get your life together. If you stick to it and just get it done it will give you a head start. And seeing how some of the posters can't even express coherent thoughts, I'd say you probably should've just sucked it up and stuck it out.

I am in jacobs creek job corps its awfull I can not wait to leave. The food is not only awfull gives you the runs daily but they portion it out like you are on a diet tonight for dinner we had to option of one thigh piece of chicken and a serving of rice or a half a cup worth of sweet and sour pork and a egg role the dinning hall doest open again for 16 hours the canteen is so expinsive that it is not always a option 2 dollars for a single hot pocket all procedes going to the student government wich they use to send some of the students the leaders on trips. there have been soo many fights here one girl got her face smashed into a carpet another one got a chunck of hair pulled out there have been riots in the streets. and dont expect wellness to care I have been sick three times in five months and have gone through three rounds of penicilin the first two time I developed bronchitis and they refused to put me on bed rest. the staff in my dorm let me sleep all day and my instructor let me take a couple shifts off but wellness shows no concern. the dorms are falling apart two dryers dont work so there are six washers and four dryers for thirty somthing girls toilets leak the rooms have no ventalation the windows are painted shut and nailed from both sides after christmas break they took our fridges away and gave them away becosue we wernt cleaning them well and the boys dorms have bugs well exept one of the boys dorm the on with the worst bug problem got to keep theres. wich Is infuriating the girls nearly never got gigged ( wich is when a certain staff member goes through the dorm daily and takes of points for things being out of place and unclean)I have seen the report the girls kept there frigdes pretty clean.it is a sexist jobs corps they take things from the females dorm to relpaces things that the boys have broken in there dorm. durying womens month they had questions in the gym with prizes on reports the staff spoke about famouse women the first time they didnt pick any females for the questions the second time we yellled at them after seing the third male picked and get his prize and they finaly picked one. come on its womens month give a female a chance to wind somthing. but this is just a start. one of the staff memebers sits in his office and looks for students breakign the rules and takes pitures through his window he took a picture of a underage female kissing her boyfriends a few weeks ago. there is no medical staff on the weekends or after four so if your hurt or sick suck it up you have the otion of numbing throat spray or tylonal. our dorm hasnt has yet to have there first aid kit refilled in months. there have been several fights on center i have never once seen the police called. they found some weed in a students mail and didnt call the police they let the girls who ripped out the other girls hair stay until she and two other girls jumped another girl. the money is going somewere for this center but I dont think it is to the students DO NOT GO TO JACOBS CREEK JOB CORPS
I wish I had known all of this before I went girl I dont know who you are but you are completly right that place some days was good. But most days was bad, EVERYONE got in fights up there and the staff alwase blamed the wrong person for it. I aggree with this girl if you go to jobcorps DO NOT GO TO JACOBS CREEK!

I can only speak on Woodland Job Corps, in Laurel, Maryland, a suburb of Wash. DC. There are many teachers, counselors, resident counselors who came there with a good heart and remain there despite a widespread belief that the mission is being ignored because managment at the top is really only interested in keepng and maintaining their power and the bonuses they get for keeping costs down. We have seen many, many students who leave after 8-11months no more prepared for a job than when they entered.
I do not want to list the outrageous negative things going on at Woodland for fear of being found out and getting fired. Fear is the operative word here. George Bush could get lessons from Woodland management in how to keep people fearful.
