Talking Leaves Job Corps Center enjoys a modern campus on a 22-acre campus in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, about an hour east of Tulsa, and just a short drive from the Cherokee Nation Reservation.
The Talking Leaves Job Corps Center (TLJC) opened its doors October 18, 1978. The center was housed at the time in Northeastern State University’s Loeser Hall. As the enrollment grew and their need for dorm space increased, TLJC moved to the Cherokee Nation Motor Lodge in 1988 and later onto their current facility in 1994.
Our campus' residential living facilities can house 130 male students and 110 female students in three dorms: one male, one female, and one coed. Residential students live with up to three roommates and enjoy the following amenities:
- laundry facilities
- computer labs
- TV lounges
- vending machines
- bathrooms and showers
Independent living advisers are on-site to help make dorm life safe, clean, and productive for students. 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.
