The Food was gross (as a vegetarian, they once served me a RAW POTATO for dinner!!) ...But it was FREE!

The dorms were old and falling apart (The furnace would decide to stop working in the middle of winter and blow out FREEZING cold air, it would take a minimum of 3 days to get maintenance in to fix it) ...But it was a FREE bed to sleep in!

The roommates were immature, loud, and freakin INSANE! (I watched this one girl make out with her stuffed animal dog for an hour before crying herself to sleep) ...But it taught you INTERPERSONAL SKILLS!

The leaders in dorm were full of themselves, gave bad advice, and some even stole things from others. (My room leader once during chores got into my dresser and stole $35 dollars out of my I.D. Pouch) ...But they taught you how NOT to be a leader!

The staff liked to patronize the students. Most were write-up happy. (We sometimes got write ups for walking in the grass) ...But the ones that really cared about the students would have done ANYTHING to help us out!


Job corps really sucked, but if you go in with the right head about things and follow the rules (no matter how pathetic they are) you'll survive just fine! Job corps was good for me, and good for a ton of other people too!

...oh! Did I mention that they PAY YOU TO RECEIVE A FREE EDUCATION?!?! That's right, YOU GET MONEY FOR IT!!!
I spent 366 days at Job Corps and Graduated from the program as a CERTIFIED PHARMACY TECHNICIAN and CERTIFIED PHLEBOTOMY TECHNICIAN (and over $900 in my back pocket!)

Job Corps, although tough, is a good place to get straight!

Job Corps, Where do I start. Instead of BITCHING AND MOANING about a free home, free food, and free college level education like everyone else, I will let you in on the real Job Corps. Job Corps is for kids from the ages 16 to 24 that cant get on their feet, make it through public school, or just survive. This place grows people up and make them choose between being a total fuck up piece of shit or being a real person that wants to live a good life without trouble. The people who have posted bad things about Job Corps are the ones who couldnt get the clue on being a real person. They are the ones that we saw in EXRA DUTY every weekend because they kept getting in trouble. THEY are the reason we have strict rules. The Rules here are not hard to follow and are common sense. They are in place to keep all safe and without problems. And you know what.... Mabey Job Corps staff do have a life and get laid. Did you ever think that they get paid to PUSH AND PUSH TO MAKE YOU BETTER. If you want to get Butt HURT because a bunch of teachers want to get paid minimal gov't wage to help you have a better life then they did, then go home and dont take the help. SHUT THE FUCK UP. GO HOME AND START SUCKING ON YOUR MOMS TIT. Because when your at home.... that is what you do..... suck the parents money, life and fun away. GET OUT INTO THE REAL WORLD. For those who are looking at Job Corps.... GO.... Learn somthing...... MAKE A BETtEr YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

for every one that read the "opinions" above excluding the previous one, job corp is a great place. i personally give good reference. i am from da hood, been into shit, dope, nd shit im not supposed 2 be doing in the first place.unlike these people above complaining that they can't do what they want because they are immature little brats who think they run it but they don't run shit so complainers seriously, shut the fuck up and go back elementary if you gonna act like a kid bitch. if it wasn't for j.c i would be dead, drunk, homeless or somehwere and i thank God i found a place like this. i mean yeah a few teachers are dicks and the center director is a little farfetch'd but who in the world isnt. there will always be drugs and violence, but as long as u follow simple fucking rules that only require common sense, then maybe you jerks would'nt be talking all this shit that u could'nt accomplish because u decided to follow your own rules punk. as for STD's, how bout dont fuck and keep clean, if not then enter at your own risk. so w.e go fuck yourselves and for the people reading this and are interested, don't apply if ur not willing to sacrifice some freedom and ready to study. thank you for reading this and if you have a negative comment, like i said go fuck yourself.
Job Corps is a good place to study, but ignore the fools, and stick to real homies and u may like what waits at the end of the tunnel. tighten up

I went to job corps and went through all the shit that all the ghetto fucking kids wanted to pull. e.g. taking a shit in the toilet and not flushing. pissing in the fountain. smelling like shit all the time. starting shit with other people, because they are immature assholes. This is the typical bullshit that is done all the time. ALL THE FUCKING TIME. YOu know how ***I**** got through job corps? I fucking did what I suppose to do, I kept my shit clean, I went to class and completed *ALL* my training. I went to college for free and went on to a UNIVERSITY. ********************************The reason it is strict there, is because of dumb asshole children that get dropped off there because they aren't wanted at home. ********************************
You came there for a reason and that is to learn and to GROW the FUCK UP. NOBODY is FORCING you to stay there. The only reason YOU have to be there is because your GRANDMA won't want you home. Stop being a bitch and QQ and pulling the WTFBBQ on people telling you to PULL your fucking pants up and goto class.

I had plenty of FRIENDS that graduated with a RN, LVN, Automechanic, Electrician, Business owner. That went to Job Corps and succeeded. I loved Job Corps and if I had a second chance to do it again, I'd be in line on the spot.

Jobcorps is a strange and unbidding place. First off you are lied to before you actually step foot on the property then again after you do. They give you medical in the form of medicare and at the first sign of something serious the send you home till you pay a doctor to say your better. In is a place where you have to find somthing to do or commit suicide which happened here in Homestead two weeks before I got here. On first impression it reminds you of a prison and it is though it doesn't have a ball and chain. Should you change your mind and quit you pay from your own pocket to get home. Here some of the teachers care like HVAC, Automotive others don't and are hard to find AKA: Computer Repair. The rules are in place until people get comfortable then the take away liberties without intention of returning them. I mean if you have no choice as in homeless which was my case it is an option. Truthfully I wouldn't recomend this place I was better on the side of the road they will mind wipe you into being a drone or kill you.
People do drugs all the time
High ups make living conditions impossible with the amount of restictions placed
There is a dangerous amount of mold in Homestead
The HVAC wasn't meant for the amount of people in the building so there is a high percentage of sick mostly belonging to flu or heavy upper resportory infection
PDA of any kind is not prohibited on center though rule book makes it clear that it is only supposed to stead for OVERT SEXUAL BEHAVOR
