Alaska Job Corps Center is located in Palmer, Alaska, just a short drive from Anchorage. Students live on a 20-acre campus surrounded by wide river valleys, agricultural fields, neighborhoods, and mountains. The diverse campus encourages service learning and active lifestyles amid Alaska’s natural beauty.
Alaska Job Corps Center was announced in December of 1990 by Labor Secretary Elizabeth Dole and opened in Palmer, Alaska, in April 1994.
Our campus' residential living facilities can house 161 male students in five dorms and 164 female students in four dorms. Residential students live with one to three roommates and enjoy the following amenities:
- computer lab
- laundry facilities
- TV lounges
- vending machines
- private bathrooms & showers in each room
An independent living adviser is on-site to help make dorm life safe, clean, and productive for the students. We also serve non-residential students.
Please check with our admissions counselor for details on our Child Development Center.
Students stay in separate male and female dormitories. There are up to four students to each dorm room. Your room will be assigned to you upon arrival at the center.
