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>
Fire Crew
<p>Members of The Fire Crew are trained to work in steep and remote terrain and in extreme temperatures, altitude, and smoke while maintaining reserve work capacity to meet unanticipated emergencies.</p>
Honor Guard
<p>The Honor Guard is responsible for serving as the "guardians of the colors" by displaying and escorting our national and state flags at ceremonial occasions and official functions. This includes presenting the colors at groundbreaking ceremonies and providing detachments for review by visiting political leaders and dignitaries.</p>
Student Leadership Program
<p>The Student Leadership Program is modeled after city government and provides a basic overview of government, committees, meetings, and town hall gatherings. Its goal is to help students develop their leadership skills through team building, social and business interaction, problem-solving, career development and the development of diplomatic views. To qualify for this training program, students must show they are mature and have leadership potential. The program itself takes place after school hours but is open to all our students.</p>
<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 Weber Basin Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center, it also means assisting the following organizations with their important work:</p> <ul> <li>Cooking for St. Anne’s Homeless Shelter </li> <li>Make A Difference Day</li> <li>Utah Arts Festival</li> <li>Your Community Connection</li> <li>Youth Impact</li> </ul>
Educational Programs
Weber Basin High School
<p>Through a partnership with Weber School District, Weber Basin Job Corps is proud to offer a fully accredited high school program located on our campus.</p> <p>Weber Basin High School is self-paced and classes are small so students can get one-on-one assistance from our State-Certified Teachers. Thanks to our partnership, students eligible for special education services will receive full IDEA benefits.</p> <p>Weber Basin High School is accredited through AdvanEd.</p>
GED/High School Diploma
<p>Weber Basin Job Corps understands that basic education is vital to securing meaningful employment. Students who do not already have their GED or High School Diploma will be enrolled in one of our fully accredited programs in order to obtain their basic education.</p>
