Three smiling Job Corps students

Center Life

A typical day at Ramey 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/or hands-on career technical training and enjoy extracurricular activities.

Students in the dormitories are supervised by Residential Staff who ensure that they complete their chores, exhibit good behavior, and return to the dormitory as scheduled.

Recreation

Ramey 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 have a wide variety of recreational activities. Some of the activities we offer are:

  • Arts and crafts

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 works with center staff to address the needs and concerns of the students and implement solutions for the benefit of everyone.

The Student Government Association is made up of a group of students elected by the student body. Elections are held twice a year. A student elected to the SGA should have more than 180 days on center and be in good standing.

The Executive Board of the SGA consists of students elected to the offices of the President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and various Representative positions. These students represent our center within Puerto Rico and the United States at annual conferences. Membership in the SGA allows students the opportunity to develop their leadership, political, and ethical skills.
