Child Development Center

Our Child Development Center (CDC) provides quality child care services to the children of our students. Operated by Head Start and Rainbow, the CDC can care for up to 30 children between the ages of six weeks and five years in infant, toddler, and preschool classrooms.

Individuals with children applying to Job Corps must complete an application for the CDC in addition to the Job Corps application. Your admissions counselor can provide you with more details.

Residential Parent/Child Program

Our Single Parent Dormitory provides housing for up to 36 single parents with one or two children, ranging from six months to five years old. Students living in this dorm help each other with child care, parenting ideas, encouragement, and other support. There are organized activities to help develop good parenting skills and shopping trips every Monday and Thursday.

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>
Book Club
<p>A good book not only gets you caught up in its story but takes you to places you have never been and introduces you to characters with backgrounds and views that are different from your own. By experiencing these new places, events, and characters, the reader's perspectives expand, their understanding of the world grows, and they become wiser and better people as a result. </p> <p>Reading is an important life skill, but it's also simply fun, even more so if your friends are reading the same book. In this spirit, our Book Club brings students from different backgrounds together to discuss deeper topics and grow their friendships through a similar interest: reading.</p>
Gold Card Club
“Life Changing Results” Fitness Club
<p>The goal of the Life Changing Results Fitness Club is to spread education and awareness about the importance and joy of exercise and an active lifestyle. Through fun, games, and exercise routines the club seeks to enhance the strength, flexibility, of its members, and foster a lifelong commitment to health and activity.</p>
Planting Council
Table Toppers Club
Weight Training Club
<p>The purpose of the Weight Training Club is to introduce students to the benefits of strength training.</p> <p>The club brings together people of all skill levels who all have an interest in weightlifting and provides an organization where students can meet to lift with each other, push each other to reach their goals, and get advice on how to continue training.</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 Flint-Genesee Job Corps Center, it also means assisting the following organizations with their important work:</p> <ul> <li>American Cancer Society</li> <li>Back to the Bricks</li> <li>CRIM Festival of Races</li> <li>Greater Flint Arts Council</li> <li>Habitat for Humanity</li> <li>Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk</li> <li>Universal Kidney Foundation</li> <li>WSMH Fox 66 News Fall Festival</li> </ul>
Educational Programs
GED/High School Diploma
<p>One of our top goals at Flint/Genesee 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 Flint/Genesee can enroll in our GED program.</p> <p>Students can earn their high school diplomas from one of two fully accredited school programs. Our partnership with the Flint-Genesee County School District allows our students to attend high school classes off center and participate in their school activities including graduation. High school classes can also be attended online.</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>
The Advanced Career Training (ACT) Program
<p>The Advanced Career Training (ACT) program is a college program for eligible Job Corps students to achieve a higher level of career training. We have ACT partnerships with Baker College, Davenport University, and Mott Community College.
