Was very interesting and different. Learning to use many different things for everyday living. Hands on with everything and amazing teachers. Free time and amazing one on one interaction. Many different courses and an option to obtain high school diploma and or GED while there.

Have to be 16 to 26 to apply for free program. There are many job corps centers all over with many different trades. If I could go back and do it all over I would!

Great hands on skills, everyone keeps you motivated to push threw. Always willing to help or have study groups. And there is always some one there to talk to if you need. Even if it's just to vent.

It's a mixed range of different women from around the country. Going for the nursing program. It's much like boarding school. The daily school life starts at 7 am and ends at 3:30. But you have down time after that and your able to complete test to hurry you to clinicals.
