Deep in North Carolina’s Nantahala National Forest lies the Lyndon B. Johnson Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center. All students live on the 10-acre, rural campus.
This Job Corps center opened as Camp Arrow Wood in the Nantahala National Forest near the town of Franklin, North Carolina, early in 1965. When President Lyndon B. Johnson died in 1973, the camp was renamed after him.
Our campus' residential living facilities can house 155 male students in three dorms and 50 female students in two dorms. Residential students live with four to eight roommates and enjoy the following amenities:
- laundry facilities
- TV rooms
- computer labs
- vending machines
- bathrooms and showers
There is also an on-site independent living adviser to help make dorm life safe, clean, and productive for the students.
Students stay in separate male and female dormitories. There are up to eight students in 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.
