Center History

The Angell Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center began its life in 1941 as a Civilian Conservation Corps camp. With the U.S.’s entry into WWII, the site became the Angell Civilian Public Service Camp No. 56, one of 151 such camps that provided conscientious objectors with an alternative to military service during the war. At the end of the war, the US Forest Service acquired the site. It became a Job Corps Center in 1965.

Student Programs
Student Government Association
<p>The Student Government Association (SGA) is the voice of our students and plays a key role in the operation of the center. We encourage all of our students to join the SGA.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>SGA members also have the responsibility to:</p> <ul> <li>Be a positive role model to the other students.</li> <li>Assist in the decision-making process with the Center Director and Senior Management Team relating to policies affecting student life on and off campus.</li> <li>Develop leadership skills.</li> <li>Practice self-government and have input on center policies.</li> <li>Learn and practice positive leadership and socialization skills.</li> <li>Assist with tours on center.</li> <li>Work with all departments through the SGA Committees.</li> <li>Host activities for the student body.</li> <li>Work closely with the Business-Community Liaison to bridge the gap between the Job Corps program and the community.</li> </ul> <p>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.<br> </p>
Angell Fit Club
<p>The goal of the Angell Fit Club is to spread education and awareness about the importance and joy of exercise and an active lifestyle. Through fun, games, and exercise routines the club seeks to enhance the strength, flexibility, of its members, and foster a lifelong commitment to health and activity.</p>
Green Committee
<p>Our Green Committee is committed to reducing the center’s footprint on the environment and is charged with overseeing green projects and initiatives on center. This can mean focusing on keeping a watchful eye on the center to discover new conservation projects that might have been overlooked.</p> <p>The Committee’s day-to-day activities include organizing recycling and energy efficiency projects around the center, planting trees, and educating fellow students about the importance reducing, reusing, and recycling. </p>
HEALS (Healthy Eating and Active Lifestyles)
<p>In the past, we have worked under the idea that exercise happens in recreation, nutrition happens in the cafeteria, and health education happens in wellness. It’s time to change that way of thinking. Health happens everywhere—in dorms, in the classroom, even on field trips.</p> The HEALS Committee is made up of students who are dedicated to promoting this idea and to building a culture at the center that embraces wellness, healthy eating, and physical activity in everything we do. This means teaching fellow students new and easy ways to integrate healthy living throughout the day and making healthy eating and exercise a fun part of the center's culture.
Honor Guard
<p>At Angell Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center, the honor guard is responsible for serving as our "guardians of the colors" by displaying and escorting our national and state flags at ceremonial occasions and official functions. This includes presenting the colors at groundbreaking ceremonies and providing detachments for review by visiting political leaders and dignitaries. </p>
Safety Committee
<p>As people who live and work at the center every day, our students have special insight into what needs to be done to make the center a safe and healthy working and living environment for students, staff, and visitors. That is why their input is so valuable, and it’s why we invite students to participate and lead the center’s Safety Committee.</p> <p>The committee is responsible for implementing and monitoring the center’s Safety Program. Typical duties might include: </p> <ul> <li>Work and living space inspections</li> <li>Developing safe work practices across career pathways</li> <li>Developing safe practices in living and recreational areas</li> <li>Facilitating safety training</li> </ul> <p>The Committee also can help promote other activities that encourage students to support the center’s safety program.<br> </p>
COMMUNITY SERVICE
<p>Fostering positive relationships with the communities our centers are in is a key part of what Job Corps does. This can mean performing work in the neighborhood that aligns with a student's career pathway, such as building new playgrounds, patching up sidewalks, or cleaning up parks. At the Angell Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center, it also means assisting the following organizations with their important work:</p> <ul> <li>Habitat for Humanity</li> <li>Highway and beach cleanup</li> <li>Oregon Coast Aquarium</li> <li>South Lincoln Resources</li> </ul>

<p>Students needing to learn English can enter our English Language Learning (ELL) program. Students in the ELL program are tested regularly to determine their language proficiency levels.</p>

<p>The College Program is an advanced training program we offer through a partnership with Oregon Coast Community College. To qualify for this program, a student must have a high school diploma or GED (from our center or another educational facility) and have successfully completed a vocational trade at Job Corps.</p> Benefits of the College Program include: • academic advisement, mentoring, and tutoring • paid tuition, fees, books, and supplies • housing and recreation • meals provided by Job Corps, on-and-off center • transportation to and from college of choice
