Curlew Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center is a 33-acre campus located in Curlew, Washington, approximately 130 miles northwest of Spokane and 6 miles south of the Canadian border. The most remote of the rural centers, the campus is surrounded by majestic mountains, forests, and gleaming rivers and lakes.
The site that was to become the Curlew Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center began in 1951 as the Curlew Air Force Station (AFS), one of twenty-eight stations built as part of the second segment of the Air Defense Command radar network. Curlew AFS closed in 1959, but in 1965 the AFS’s cantonment (military living quarters) became the site of the Job Corps center.
Our campus' residential living facilities can house 158 male students in three dorms and 40 female students in one dorm. Residential students live with up to three roommates and enjoy the following amenities:
- laundry facilities
- computer labs
- TV lounges
