Located in the plains of northwestern Iowa, the Denison Job Corps Center sits on 54 acres near Yellowsmoke Park.
The site that would become the Denison Job Corps Center began as Midwestern College, a private liberal arts college that lasted only 5 years from 1965 to 1970. In February of 1980, the old Midwestern campus became the Denison Job Corps Center and has since helped tens of thousands of students forge their own paths to success and independence. A child care center opened on the site in 1993.
Our campus' residential living facilities can house 148 male students and 148 female students in dorms. Residential students live with up to two roommates and two dorm rooms share a bathroom. and enjoy the following amenities:
- laundry facilities
- TV lounges
- vending machines
- computer labs
Independent living advisers are on-site to help make dorm life safe, clean, and productive for students. Additionally, we offer residential housing for parents with children. We also serve nonresidential students.
Our on-center Child Development Center cares for children between six weeks and three years of age. Children between the ages of three and five can attend the Head Start program on our campus. Children that are five years and older can attend the Denison Elementary School located off center.
Our center has a 32-room dormitory for single parents and their children. This allows students to train at Job Corps without being separated from their children. Children must be at least six weeks old to be eligible for the program.
Students stay in separate male and female dormitories. There are up to three 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.
