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>
Health Committee
<p>In the past, we have worked under the idea that exercise happens in recreation, nutrition happens in the cafeteria, and health education happens in wellness. It’s time to change that way of thinking. Health happens everywhere—in dorms, in the classroom, even on field trips.</p> <p>The Health Committee is made up of students who are dedicated to promoting this idea and to building a culture at the center that embraces wellness, healthy eating, and physical activity in everything we do. This means teaching fellow students new and easy ways to integrate healthy living throughout the day and making healthy eating and exercise a fun part of center culture. </p>
Recreation Committee
<p>Student input is a critical part of our recreation program. Each dorm has representatives on the Recreation Committee where students are encouraged to submit ideas for new and different activities.</p>
Safety Committee
<p>As people who live and work at the center every day, our students have special insight into what needs to be done to make the center a safe and healthy working and living environment for students, staff, and visitors. That is why their input is so valuable, and it’s why we invite students to join the center’s Safety Committee.</p> <p>The committee is responsible for implementing and monitoring the center’s Safety Program.<br> Typical duties might include: </p> <ul> <li>Work and living space inspections</li> <li>Developing safe work practices across career pathways</li> <li>Facilitating safety training</li> </ul> <p>The Committee also can help promote other activities that encourage students to support the center’s safety program.</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 Tulsa Job Corps Center, it also means assisting the following organizations with their important work:</p> <ul> <li>The Bridges Foundation</li> <li>Celia Clinton Elementary School Student Government program</li> <li>Tulsa Parks and Recreation</li> <li>Tulsa Zoo</li> <li>WNBA Tulsa Shock</li> </ul>
Educational Programs
GED/High School Diploma
<p>One of our top goals at Tulsa Job Corps Center is to ensure that students seeking a GED or high school diploma have the opportunity to earn one prior to leaving our center. Students are required to complete twenty-three units of study to become a high school graduate.</p> <p>The state of Oklahoma has granted diploma issuing credentials to the four Job Corps centers in Oklahoma as a single school district. The central office is located at Tulsa Job Corps Center, and these four centers work together to ensure that Oklahoma dropouts get a second chance at finishing high school at the Oklahoma Job Corps Academy. As well as being accredited by the state of Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Job Corps Academy is also accredited by North Central Accreditation (NCA).</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 to determine their language proficiency levels.</p>
Tutoring
<p>Tutoring programs are available where students are tutored in math and reading 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>

Students in the ACT program can transfer to other centers with an ACT program or stay at Tulsa Job Corps Center. To qualify for this program, a student must have a high school diploma or GED (from our center or another educational facility), have successfully completed a vocational trade at Job Corps, and have the ability to work independently. </p> <p>Our center offers a wide range of advanced diploma, certificate, and associate's degree programs through the following colleges:</p> <ul> <li>Brown Mackie College</li> <li>Career Point College</li> <li>Platt College</li> <li>Tulsa Community College</li> <li>Tulsa Technology Center</li> <li>Tulsa Welding School</li> <li>Virginia College</li> <li>Wright Career College</li> </ul> <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>
