Blackwell Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center is located in Laona, Wisconsin, in the heart of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, where students can experience the outdoors of Wisconsin’s Northwoods. The center is on a 48-acre campus that is close to pristine lakes and streams, and an abundance of off-center outdoor activities.
Located in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, Blackwell was originally a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp set up during President Franklin D. Roosevelt's administration. During President Lyndon B. Johnson's administration, many former CCC sites became Job Corps centers. As such, Blackwell opened as a Job Corps center in 1965. Since then, over 15,000 students have benefited from the federal scholarships offered through Blackwell Job Corps.
Our campus' residential living facilities can house 153 male students in three dorms and 52 female students in one dorm. Residential students live with three roommates and enjoy the following amenities:
- laundry facilities
- TV lounges
- vending machines
- computer labs
- bathrooms and showers.
An independent living adviser is on-site to help make dorm life safe, clean, and productive for the students.
Students stay in separate male and female dormitories. There are four students to each dorm room. Your room will be assigned to you upon arrival at the center.
Job Corps values diversity and will provide you with opportunities to live and interact with people of many different backgrounds.
