Flint / Genesee Job Corps Center gym

Center Life

A typical day at Flint/Genesee Job Corps is full of activities to help our students prepare for the real world. Students get up early and spend the majority of their day receiving academic and hands-on career technical training.

After class, students study or hang out with friends before dinner.  After dinner, students may do chores in their dorms or spend their downtime studying. Most students are in bed by 10 PM in order to rest for the next day's tasks.


Recreation

Flint/Genesee Job Corps boasts one of the best recreation programs in the nation. Students find our recreational activities to be a fun and exciting way to meet new friends, socialize, and just relax and unwind at the end of the day. We offer traditional sports and games such as basketball, football, and softball. We also sponsor weekend trips to bowling alleys, movie theaters, and cultural events.


Student Government Association (SGA)

The Student Government Association (SGA) is the voice of our students and is very involved in the operation of the center. The SGA is made up of an Executive Board of elected students and is supervised by a staff member who is the SGA Coordinator.

There are nine standing committees that report to the SGA Executive Board. They are:

  • Academic and Vocational Training Committee
  • Center Behavior Standards Committee
  • Center Enhancement/Decoration Committee
  • Food Service Committee
  • Health and Wellness Committee
  • Recreation Committee
  • Residential Living Committee
  • Safety and Security Committee
  • Single Parent Committee

All students are encouraged to join a committee and participate in the activities.


Safety

Job Corps is committed to offering all students a safe and secure environment. That's why we have a Zero Tolerance Policy for violence and drugs. Any student who breaks this policy will be dismissed immediately from Job Corps.

Our Behavior Management (42 kb PDF file) document outlines the rules of behavior for our students. This document also lists the incentives and rewards students may earn by following these rules.
