Center Life

A typical day at Tongue Point Job Corps is full of activities to help our students prepare for the real world. Students get up early and spend the majority of their day receiving academic and hands-on career technical training.

After class, students study or hang out with friends before dinner in the cafeteria. After dinner, students may do chores in their dorms or spend their downtime studying. Most students are in bed by 10 PM in order to rest for the next day's tasks.


Tongue Point Job Corps boasts one of the best recreation programs in the nation. Students find our recreational activities to be a fun and exciting way to meet new friends, socialize, and just relax and unwind at the end of the day.

Our activities include trips to local and statewide events, swim testing, league sports, as well as student leadership opportunities. Students are encouraged to get in shape, sharpen their pool game, experience a movie, start a band, or participate in any of the exciting activities we have to offer.

Special Events

Our center holds several special events throughout the year, including an annual Fun Day sponsored by the Student Government Association. We also have a prom, film festivals, and a multicultural game day which features over 30 games presented with their cultural history.

Student Government Association

The Student Government Association (SGA) is the voice of our students and is very involved in the operation of the center. SGA officers are elected to office by their peers for a term of four months.

The SGA's primary purposes are to:

  • Provide feedback to the student body
  • Provide a sounding board for student opinions and suggestions regarding campus programs
  • Encourage citizenship training by exposure to election procedures and the use of formal rules of order
  • Develop leadership skills through holding office, solving problems, and making decisions for the good of the student body

Executive Council

The Executive Council consists of SGA officers and the four dormitory presidents. The Executive Council is responsible for presenting resolutions to center administration staff for positive change.


Job Corps is committed to offering all students a safe and secure environment. That's why we have a Zero Tolerance Policy for violence, alcohol, and drugs. Any student who breaks this policy will be dismissed immediately from Job Corps.
