Job Corps pays you a living allowance in cash twice a month. New and readmitted students receive arrival pay in the amount of a $25.

After that, the amount of your base pay depends on the number of days you are eligible for payment. For days 1-182, you receive $25 every two weeks. After 183 days, pay is increased to $35.

In addition, our students receive a weekly non-residential allowance based on program compliance.

Just like a real job, taxes are deducted, and you'll receive a W-2 at the end of each year.
