I've been at Job Corps for some time now, it used to be a great place and if anyone were to ask me about it I would recommend they go there to better the lives. But things have changed since after the break, its a joke now, due to this new company that has taken over. The old center director ran the campus perfectly, someone screwed up, they were packed out. Now this new company is just running the center all wrong. Its 12 hour days now (aren't there child labor laws being broken here?) and store trips, rec trips and anything that remotely makes people happy or lets them blow off some steam is gone. they pushed the curfew back to 9:30 (and its rumored it'll get moved further back to 10) and after dorm meeting and clean up, we don't get to bed til 12 midnight, or 1 am. So everyone is sleep deprived and tense. Whats it gonna take for this new company to stop this strange and unusual form of breaking our spirits? How far will they go?

I have graduated from North Texas Job Corps. It is a great program. Yes there is drama from the students but what do you expect. Young people living together. The programs are good. They give you food to eat, place to stay, education, a little money, trips off campus, security, and being able to learn first hand at the trade you have taken. Resident advisors are nice but strong minded at the same time. When you get there they give you any vaccinations, meds, and testing needed. They supply you with uniforms and once you have completed the first 6 weeks they give money to buy clothes. One thing I learned from there is "Life is what you make it" If you want drama and rough times then that's what it will be. It is a great time to find God, read the pocket bibles they give you, and pray. All in all Job Corps changed my life in so many ways I don't have much complaints. Just don't give up!!!!

To any parents who are considering having their child attend Job Corps, make SURE you have health insurance, or have proof that you're on Medicaid. (Same goes for those over the age of 18 who enter the program).

Job Corps recruiters and other faculty assure prospective students that they don't have to worry about not having medical insurance, as Job Corps 'has that all covered'.
Not true at all. We learned from experience. Before my stepdaughter entered the program, we were repeatedly told not to worry if she has to go to a hospital for something, Job Corps will take care of things.

Not true.

Other than that, we have no complaints about the facility or program.

I am actually leaving the program, you have to be really strong minded to be at North Texas, most students say they hate the program, but have yet to leave, you REALLY have to be ready to get what you need and go, don't fall for what someone else will tell you unless they recently graduated. There is A LOT of BS student wise, its a great program if they actually filtered who actually entered the program. Some of the staff does get in your face and gets out of line but thats all due to the minors in the program that are just looking for a place to stay. If you're a parent trying to send your 16-17 year old to get their diploma or GED, send them to an actual school not a vocational training program, chances are that if they are kicked out they'll struggle to have a real job. They do provide trips and if an admissions counselor told you they take students to Mavs and Cowboys games they are a tad out dated. go on the tour and speak to someone outside of the Student Government and the staff giving you a tour, speak to the students in their trades ask to go into the class rooms to see the academics building, try to get the BEST insight into what you're committing to. But this is just me, you might love the program...

At North Texas Job Corps, you can get your High School diploma, a GED, a driver's license, instruction in trades like Plumbing, Landscaping, Carpentry, Culinary, Nursing, Maintenence, Accounting, and Desktop Publishing. After you finish getting your certification, the dedicated staff of the transitional office will then aid you in finding a job, a car, and a place to live. With a good atmosphere, and good living conditions, Job Corps is like a home away from home.
