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>
Book Club
<p>A good book not only gets you caught up in its story but takes you to places you have never been and introduces you to characters with backgrounds and views that are different from your own. By experiencing these new places, events, and characters, the reader's perspectives expand, their understanding of the world grows, and they become wiser and better people as a result.</p> <p>Reading is an important life skill, but it's also simply fun, even more so if your friends are reading the same book. In this spirit, our Book Club brings students from different backgrounds together to discuss deeper topics and grow their friendships through a similar interest: reading.</p>
Poetry Club
<p>Poets are artists who paint and sculpt with their words. They can use their language to convey ideas, emotions, and concepts in a way that reach a listener’s heart as well as their head.</p> <p>At Poetry Club, we think everyone has a poet inside them with something to say, and we bring students together to discover their own unique voice. Along the way, members will pick up some important public speaking and literacy skills. Most importantly, the club is about having fun with other students and learning new ways to express and inspire with words.</p>
Robotics Club
Spanish Club
Step Team
<p>Stepping is a form of percussive dance that draws upon elements of gymnastics, break dance, tap dance, march, and African and Caribbean dance. The dancer’s entire body is used to produce complex rhythms and sounds through a mixture of footsteps, spoken word, and hand claps. The style’s history goes back to military close-order and exhibition drills as well as African foot dances and was popularized by African-American fraternities and sororities during the 20th century.</p> <p>The Step Team at Job Corps is a fun way to exercise, compete, and have fun with other students at the center, and members of the team put on demonstrations and performances at venues both on and off center. Students from all backgrounds and skill levels are invited to join.</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 Sacramento JobCorps Center, it also means assisting the following organizations with their important work:</p> <ul> <li>American Cancer Society</li> <li>Donation drives</li> <li>Food bank</li> <li>KVIE Channel 6</li> <li>Loaves &amp; Fishes</li> <li>Sacramento First Tee</li> </ul>
Educational Programs
GED/High School Diploma
<p>One of our top goals at Sacramento Job Corps is to ensure that every qualified student obtains his or her GED/high school diploma prior to leaving the center. Students who don't already have a high school diploma upon their arrival at Sacramento are automatically enrolled into our GED/high school program. Students who complete this program's core classes may participate in an online high school diploma program which is paid for by the center.</p>
English Language Learning Program
<p>Students needing to learn English can enter our English Language Learning (ELL) program. Students in the ELL program are tested regularly with the California Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS) test to determine their language proficiency levels.</p>
Tutoring
<p>Tutoring programs are available where students are tutored in math, reading, social studies, and writing 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>
College Program
<p>The College Program is an advanced training program. To qualify for this program, a student must have a high school diploma or GED (from our center or another educational facility) and have successfully completed a vocational trade at Job Corps.</p> <p>Benefits of the College Program include:</p> <ul> <li>Academic advisement, mentoring, and tutoring</li> <li>Paid tuition, fees, books, and supplies</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</li> </ul> <p>This program is offered through partnerships with American River Junior College, Cosumnes River Junior College, and Sacramento City Junior College.</p>
Driver Education
<p>Driver's Education is available to all students needing their driver's license.</p>
Who do I have to live with?
