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.

Bulldog Club
Diversity Clubs
<p>The Diversity Clubs' purpose is to promote diversity and equality regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, nationality, or religion. We are committed to achieving this standard among all individuals within the center's community, including teachers, students, staff, and administration. Our goal is to provide a safe environment to have honest and sometimes tough discussions about ethnic, cultural, and societal issues in American society.</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 Clearfield Job Corps Center, it also means assisting the following organizations with their important work:</p> <ul> <li>American Red Cross</li> <li>Boys &amp; Girls Club</li> <li>Cottages of Hope</li> <li>Family Connection</li> <li>Habitat for Humanity</li> <li>Road Home Shelter</li> <li>St. Anne’s Shelter</li> </ul>

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 with the California Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS) test to determine their language proficiency levels.</p>
