Teenager City, 8/07/2011

This is not the place for your child, unless, you want them to be bored 12-14 hours a day, experience violence up close and personal on a daily basis, live without air conditioning in 3 digit heat,... eat less than nourshing meals with flies and nats on a regular basis, have their personal property stolen with no recourse, their emotional, and even physical needs ignored just for starters. What may have been true in 2002 is certainly not the case now. It seems that the only thing that matters is the government funds received for the head count.

very hard to get used to, 6/11/2008

I was sixteen and I dropped out of high school. My mom told me to either get a job or go back to school, and I had seen a commercial on T.v . It was a commercial for Job Corps. I decided to sign up.... I started at the Gainesville Job coprs on May 7th 2002. It was very emotional for me. It was the first time i had ever been seperated from my mom and brother ever. The staff were very helpful. And they encourage the students to mingle and get to know each other. I started out in Culinary Arts and ended up receiving my degree in Union painting. How that happened im not sure. I also recieved my GED. Overall I enjoyed my experiences at Job Corps, and would recommend going to anyone who feels that they dont have anymore options. It;s a experienc you will never forget and you will walk away with a future. And tons of friendships. Consider it.
