Tongue Point Job Corps is a trade school, where you learn your desired vocation, and can obtain your GED, HSD, drivers licence, and any other certificates you need for your desired field. I was a student here, and a typical day for me was leaving the dormitory around 7:15am, and going to my trade at 7:55am. We would work until 4pm, with 10 minute breaks twice, and an hour long lunch. We were free weekends. I learned group management skills, leadership skills, and other necessary job skills. The work place culture can be very difficult to acclimate to, as we are full time students, and we love on site. Most people are friendly, but some are not so. The hardest part of the job was dealing with some instructors/teachers who were unflexable,and unreasonable. The most enjoyable part was the every weekend field trips.
