Since 1981, South Bronx Job Corps Center has helped students in New York build bright and beautiful futures for themselves. The building, located in the Bronx near Yankee Stadium, is recognized as a historic landmark. Sitting on a 15-acre campus, the center has both residential and nonresidential students.
The South Bronx Job Corps Center building started its life as the Messiah Home for Children in 1908 thanks to donations from Standard Oil magnate Henry H. Rogers. In 1920, the building was sold to the Salvation Army who used the building as a training center until 1975. In 1978, it was taken over by New York City for use as the South Bronx Job Corps Center which officially opened in 1981.
Our campus' residential living facilities can house 100 male students in two dorms and 100 female students in two dorms. Independent-living dorms are available with extended privileges for students who qualify. Residential students live with two to three roommates and enjoy the following amenities:
- laundry facilities
- TV lounges
- computer labs
- vending machines
- 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.
