I went to Northlands Job Corps in Vergennes VT and in all honesty, everyone is saying the food is HORRIBLE, no. Just imagine if u had to eat the school cafeteria food all the time. Its not HORRIBLE but obviously not preferred. There was a lot of fights but I stayed to myself and my boyfriend and I for the most part stayed out of trouble and didnt get into any fights. What people need to realize is the more friends you have when you are there, the more drama you will be involved in and could intentionally get into a fight with someone because of who you are with. The nurses office honestly sucked and they tried giving me cough drops for everything, and for people who don't know, (for parents sending their underage kids) they will prescribe medicine for them and distribute it. So ADHD meds which are really addictive, birth control, anxiety meds, sleeping pills. They prescribe it and don't say anything to the parents and they didn't ask me if I was allergic to anything when they prescribed me something so that could be dangerous. It would be a lot better of a program if the people could just live outside campus and just go for classes. A lot of the fighting is being cooped up and if you are under 18 you aren't allowed to even walk into town. It sucks being stuck on campus with nothing to do. They also need to not do such a wide age range of students. Its for people 16-24. So. Imagine, 16 year old girl and 24 year old guy. Yuck. And it happens all of the time because everyone is crammed in their together. That is the most hormoniest ages and you are gonna pack them all in there like that, and then try to charge statutory rape when an older guy sleeps with one of the younger girls. Its a decent program I suppose but there are a lot of things they could fix. They should do 16-20 and 21-24. That would probably cut back on the young pregnancies there. When I was there girls joked the water got you pregnant. Its ridiculous. Just look into where you are sending your kid or going yourself honestly because you don't want to be messed up in the drama some of those places have. Some are really nice I have heard but I hated being at Northlands. There is also a new Center Director now and my brother is there now and says it has gotten a lot better.

What is "unprofessional" about calling people out in a business meeting? If you are supposed to have your s*** together and you don't, being called out on it means that YOU are unprofessional.

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 hate jobcorps my ex fiance when to one and it totally ruined our relationship he left me age (14) with a 6 month old baby and 3 months pregnant and told me nothing would change but progressively the phone calls became less often. an the jobcorp he chose was out of state instead of a closer one and i can never go visit giving my age. so everything he tells me ends up being a lie even rho he claims there not an he rubs it in my face that i cant go anywhere and live a regular well somewhat regular life. now in having our second child which he cant be here for because a child birth isnt concidered a emergency even tho i have no one to take care of my daughter while im giving birth. an to top it off the jobcorp is only giving me $30 of child support for me and 2 babies. so yea thanks jobcorp :/

Why is it Job Corp's job to support your kids? Isn't that your job and the children's father who should be doing that? Why are you making your poor choices a taxpayer problem?

I went to the one in laurel, worst mistake of my life, the teachers there are only out for a paycheck (except for the carpentry and electrical teachers, which actually taught there students something), most of them were racist against the 10 white people there, our dorms leader made any white kids there alienated by talking about how this program was only supposed to be for you "underprivileged black students" (his words, not mine), and were any one who isn't white can just spout out the nastiest racist things they feel like, but if you say anything back your all of a sudden In the main office getting a lecture and being threatened to be kicked out, not to mention I had a decent teacher at first until he got a better job and left us to an ex crack junkie, that would rather spend half the day talking about how he got hooked on crack, heroin and other stuff and how god saved his life and how Obama was going to save us all rather than teach the friggin class he was hired for, its a stupid place to go, if I were to do it all over again I would have tried to save the money and went to a real school instead of this joke that pretends its one, the job corps program should be shut down and restructured with people that actually care about things other than their wallets...and you cant even try and say they don't get paid well when half the upper staff drives in jaguars and bmw's, but we as students are only allowed 25 bucks every other week, and the amenities they claim to have are bs....a computer room where everyone stays on it all day on facebook and never lets anyone else use them, a gym that your not allowed to go in and use unless you're on the football team (football team, REALLY?? were here to learn a trade, not play high school all over again), and a cafeteria where these animals destroy anything nice, and the "job placement center" at the end of your time there....its nothing more than 20 computers in a room and a glorified babysitter that tells everyone to get on craigslist, carrerlink, and go apply at mcdonalds and walmart.....yeah that's really helpfull, if you have any sense they will stay away or keep their kids away from this dung heap of a wannabe school and sent them and theirs to an actual institute of higher learning

I went to job corp in 1989 at the main campus at earl c and its satellite center and it was like a prison and taught a socialist agenda . At that time we had race riots and the director of the campus got beat up bad and our warehouse was burnt down and the Kentucky national guard was brought in to quell the violence . of course as a minority at that time i was beaten several times for just being a humble white male . Most of the people who go to job core are losers and some belong in prison .
that riot was not about race even though they were burning a cross behind grad droms by the big cafe that yr job corp was what u made it myself was on the drill team RIP Cap. Trible and did 2yrs at evensville c.c. thanks to job corp I don't know if you remember A complex the sticks that's where I was until they moved us to D I had fun oh that was my class that got burned
