Pay and Allowances
Job Corps pays each student a living allowance twice a month while in the program. But just like a real job, taxes are deducted from this allowance.
Our center can house 120 male students and 70 female students in two separate dormitories. Each dormitory has bathroom and shower facilities, laundry facilities, TV rooms, lounges, and vending machines. Each domitory floor is supervised by residential staff who attend to the needs of the students.
Our students are provided three nutritious meals and two snacks each day at no cost in one of the best cafeteria facilities in Job Corps.
The wellness center is open daily for basic medical, dental, and optometrist services which are provided free to our students. The wellness center also provides 24-hour emergency medical services. Weight management, smoking cessation, pregnancy prevention, and other health-related programs are also available.
Each student is assigned a case evaluator after his/her first 60 days at Ramey Job Corps. Some of the responsibilities of case evaluators are:
- Maintain a personal/professional record for the student. (This record includes the student's personal information, Case Notes, Career Preparation Period Training Achievement Records (CPP TARs), Career Success Standards Training Achievement Records (CSS TARs), orientations, the student's Professional Career Development Plan (PCDP), evaluations, Absent Without Leave (AWOL) reports, copies of passes, agreements, and any disciplinary incidents.)
