Location Description

The Woodstock Job Corps Center is located in Woodstock outside of Randallstown, Maryland. Woodstock sits on 64 acres near Patapsco Valley State Park. The site was originally a Jesuit monastery, and today retains much of its historic past.

Center History

Woodstock Job Corps Center was originally built as a Jesuit monastery, and today retains much of its historic charm. Many of the buildings' cornerstones retain the marks of Woodstock College located here in the early to mid-1800s. The grounds and buildings were sold to the State of Maryland on July 30, 1971. The state planned to rehab the buildings before using them for the Job Corps program.

The Jesuits retained ownership of the Cemetery and Mortuary Chapel, which greets visitors upon arrival to our center. We continue our relationship with the Jesuits, collaborating to maintain the cemetery grounds with our landscaping students.

Housing: a furnished bedroom

Our campus' residential living facilities can house 295 male students in three dorms and 145 female students in two dorms. 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.

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>
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 Woodstock Job Corps Center, it also means assisting organizations like Habitat for Humanity with their important work.</p>
Educational Programs
GED/High School Diploma
<p>One of our top goals at Woodstock Job Corps is to ensure that every qualified student obtains his or her GED/high school diploma prior to leaving the center. Students who don't already have a high school diploma upon their arrival at Woodstock are automatically enrolled into our GED/high school program. Students who complete this program's core classes may participate in an online high school diploma program which is paid for by the center.</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, reading, social studies, and writing 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>
HIGHER EDUCATION partners
<p>The College Program is an advanced training program we offer through partnerships with Anne Arundel Community College and Community College of Baltimore County. To qualify for this program, a student must have a high school diploma or GED (from our center or another educational facility) and have successfully completed a vocational trade at Job Corps.</p> <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>
Driver Education
<p>Driver's Education is available to all students needing their driver's license.</p>
Who do I have to live with?

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.
