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>
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. </p>
Educational Programs
HiSET/High School Diploma
<p>One of our top goals at New Hampshire Job Corps is to ensure that every qualified student obtains his or her high school equivalency/high school diploma prior to leaving the center. Students who don't already have a high school diploma upon their arrival at New Hampshire Job Corps are automatically enrolled into our HSE program. We also provide our students the option of attaining their online high school diploma program which is paid for by the center.</p>
English Language Learning Program
<p>Students with limited English proficiency will enroll in our English Language Learning (ELL) program. Students identified for ELL will take the BEST exam to determine their language proficiency levels.</p>
<p>Tutoring programs are available where students are tutored by instructors or by fellow students (Peer Student Tutors). Students interested in getting into a tutoring program may contact their instructors or the Academic Manager.</p>
Driver Education
<p>Driver's Education is available to all students needing their New Hampshire driver's License. Students are trained by a New Hampshire State Certified Driving Instructor with many years experience teaching young people the rules of the road.</p>
Advanced Training Programs
<body> <p>We provide two Advanced Training Programs: Advanced Career Training (ACT) and Off Center Training (OCT). These programs are offered with our college partners. To qualify for these programs, a student must have a high school diploma or HSE (from our center or another educational facility) and have successfully completed a career technical training program at Job Corps.</p> <p>Benefits of our Advanced Programs include:</p> <ul> <li>academic advisement, mentoring, and tutoring</li> <li>housing and recreation</li> <li>meals provided by Job Corps, on-and-off center</li> <li>transportation to and from college of choice<br> </li> </ul>
Who do I have to live with?

Male and female students stay in separate wings of our dormitory. There are up to 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.
