New Haven Job Corps Center is located on a handsome campus along the bus line to New Haven, Connecticut, at the foothills of West Rock Ridge State Park and close to Yale University and Southern Connecticut University. The center is located on a beautiful, 15-acre campus constructed to accommodate students with physical disabilities; it serves a large mainstream population as well.
In December of 1990, Labor Secretary Elizabeth Dole announced five new Job Corps centers, including one in New Haven, Connecticut. A few years later, the New Haven Job Corps Center opened on a site that was once New Haven Regional Center, a 1965 facility that housed and educated children with moderate developmental disabilities.
Our campus' residential living facilities can house 86 male students in and 64 female students in 4 dorms. Residential students live with roommates and enjoy the following amenities:
- laundry facilities
- TV lounges
- vending machines
- computers for student use
- bathrooms and showers
We also serve nonresidential students.
Students stay in separate male and female dormitories. There are up to four students in 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.
