Finch-Henry Job Corps Center spans 28 acres in Batesville, Mississippi, just a short drive from downtown. The campus has the feel of a small community college.
Finch-Henry Job Corps Center first opened in 1981 as the Batesville Job Corps Center. The center name was changed in October 2009 to honor Charles C. "Cliff" Finch, a former governor of the state of Mississippi, and Dr. Aaron Henry, a leader of the civil rights movement. Both played a significant role in the selection of Batesville, Mississippi, as the site of a new Job Corps center in the late 1970s.
Our campus' residential living facilities can house 100 male students and 100 female students in three dorms; one male dorm, one female dorm, and one co-ed dorm with separate wings for males and females. Residential students live with two to four roommates and enjoy the following amenities:
- laundry facilities
- TV rooms
- vending machines
- computer labs
- bathrooms and showers
There is also an on-site independent living adviser to help make dorm life safe, clean, and productive for the students. We also serve nonresidential students.
Students stay in separate male and female dormitories. There are up to five students to 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.
