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.

Arts and Crafts Club
<p>If you’re crafty (or want to be), this is the club for you. Our Arts and Crafts Club teaches students techniques on how to use inexpensive materials to make eye-catching decorative items. It’s a great way for creative students to express themselves, as well as craft a few keepsakes to remember their time at Job Corps. </p>
Billiards Club
<p>Billiards is a great game for developing skills related to focus, strategy, and poise under pressure. It’s also simply a fun game and a great way to make new friends. The Billiards Club is the place to meet pool players of all levels at the center. Beginners are welcome and will receive tips and instruction from more experienced players.</p>
Weightlifting Club
<p>The purpose of the Weightlifting Club is to introduce students to the benefits of strength training.</p> <p>The club brings together people of all skill levels who all have an interest in weightlifting and provides an organization where students can meet to lift with each other, push each other to reach their goals, and get advice on how to continue training.</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 Dayton Job Corps Center, it also means assisting the following organizations with their important work:</p> <ul> <li>Five Rivers Park</li> <li>Local schools</li> <li>United Way</li> </ul>
