Student Government AssociationThe Student Government Association (SGA) is the voice of our students and plays a key role in the operation of the center. We encourage all our students to join the SGA.
The SGA Council is composed of Executive Board officers, Vocational Representatives, and Area Student Leaders. The Executive Board members are the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Community Coordinator. Vocational Representatives are student leaders representing each career training program on center. The Area Student Leaders are mentors, recreational aides, residential advisors, safety marshals, and student tour guides.
In their weekly meetings, SGA representatives make recommendations to the Center Director about rules affecting students including enforcement of rules. The Center Director also consults with the SGA before introducing new rules for students.
SGA members also have the responsibility to:
• Be a positive role model to the other students.
• Assist in the decision-making process with the Center Director and Senior Management Team relating to policies affecting student life on and off campus.
• Develop leadership skills.
• Practice self-government and have input on center policies.
• Learn and practice positive leadership and socialization skills.
• Assist with tours on center.
• Work with all departments through the SGA Committees.
• Host activities for the student body.
• Work closely with the Business-Community Liaison to bridge the gap between the Job Corps program and the community.
After 30 days of enrollment at our center, you may apply for the Leadership Training Class. After you complete three weeks of leadership training, you can apply for SGA membership.
Anti-Bullying ClubThe Anti-Bullying Club's mission to shape a society in which all people, regardless of race, color, creed or sexual orientation, are protected from harassment, abuse, and ridicule.
By teaching our neighbors, our educators, our lawmakers, and ourselves about bullying and methods to stop it we are making our world a better place for everyone.
D.A.R.E.This year millions of students around the world will benefit from D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education), the highly acclaimed program that gives them the skills they need to avoid involvement in drugs, gangs, and violence.
D.A.R.E. is a police officer-led series of classroom lessons that teaches students how to resist peer pressure and live productive drug and violence-free lives.
NAACPThe mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.
