The Schenck Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center is located on 30 acres at the edge of the woods of western North Carolina’s tranquil Nantahala National Forest, a perfect place for a student to reflect and focus on building a future for themselves.
Schenck Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center was activated May 18, 1965, and today it continues its proud tradition of preparing students for successful careers by blending academics and vocational training. It is located in the Pisgah National Forest near the site of the first forestry school in the United States, founded by Carl A. Schenck.
