A Day in the Life at Job Corps

A typical day at Wolf Creek Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center 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 in the cafeteria. After dinner, students may do chores in their dorms, study, attend high school classes or tutoring, or participate in clubs and team sports. Most students are in bed by 10:00 PM in order to rest for the next day's tasks.

Job Corps Benefits

Our campus' residential living facilities can house 155 male students in six dorms and 50 female students in one dorm. Residential students live with up to six roommates and enjoy the following amenities:

  • laundry facilities
  • computers
  • microwaves
  • TV lounges
  • vending machines
  • bathrooms and showers

Transition dorms are available for students who qualify.

Job Corps provides, at no cost to you, any materials and supplies (i.e., books, workbooks, testing materials, specialized and safety equipment) you'll need to complete your academic and career training programs.

For students with dependent children, you may authorize $5, $10, or $15 to be deducted from your living allowance for childcare. Whichever amount you choose, Job Corps' contribution matches five times your contribution. For example, when you contribute $5, the center contributes $25 for a total allotment of $30. A check for the total allotment will be sent to your child's caregiver.

Centers issue, at no cost to you, the uniforms, specialized and safety equipment, and clothing necessary to participate in your career training program. After you have been in Job Corps for 30 to 90 days, you will be eligible to receive a clothing allowance of $100 to purchase additional personal clothing items. After that, students within 90 days of graduation from Job Corps can receive an additional $125, and students who enroll in Advanced Training are eligible for an additional $100.

Nutritious and well-balanced meals are prepared daily in the center's cafeteria at no cost to you. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and an evening snack are served Monday through Friday. Brunch and dinner are served on weekends and holidays.

Our wellness center provides basic medical, dental, optometry, and mental health services which are provided free to you.

Job Corps pays you a living allowance in cash twice a month. New and readmitted students receive arrival pay in the amount of a $25.

After that, the amount of your base pay depends on the number of days you are eligible for payment. For days 1-182, you receive $25 every two weeks. After 183 days, pay is increased to $35.

Just like a real job, taxes are deducted, and you'll receive a W-2 at the end of each year.

The Wolf Creek Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center is located on the western edge of the Umpqua National Forest in southwestern Oregon. The 14-acre campus in Glide, Oregon, is just a short drive from Roseburg. Many of its buildings were built in the 1960s, but have been well maintained and updated by students over the years.

Student Programs & Organizations

We want your time with Job Corps to be enjoyable. Join an organization and make new friends!

The Student Government Association (SGA) is the voice of our students and plays a key role in the operation of the center. Members learn to be positive role models, develop leadership and socialization skills, practice self-government, and have input on center policies. We encourage all of our students to join the SGA.

Youth 2 Youth: Partners 4 Peace (Y2Y) is an initiative created and led by Job Corps students to promote peace in their communities. Students engage with peers and community members through activities and events aimed at curbing bullying and violence in local communities.
