Student Government Association
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.
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.
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.
SGA members also have the responsibility to:
- Be a positive role model to the other students.
- Assist in the decision-making process with the Center Director and Senior Management Team relating to policies affecting student life on and off campus.
- Develop leadership skills.
- Practice self-government and have input on center policies.
- Learn and practice positive leadership and socialization skills.
- Assist with tours on center.
- Work with all departments through the SGA Committees.
- Host activities for the student body.
- Work closely with the Business-Community Liaison to bridge the gap between the Job Corps program and the community.
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.
The Choir Club promotes teamwork, a sense of community, and has a lot of fun with music at the heart of everything we do. Its goal is to enhance the musical, creative, and expressive qualities of all members so that they can find the music inside them and use their own unique voice to share it with the world. Along the way, we will be learning the basics of musical theory as it relates to choral music and applying them firsthand in rehearsals and performances both in-center and out in the community.
The Jazz Band explores many different styles of jazz including dixieland, bebop, bossa nova, swing, and standards. The students play their instruments, study music theory, and improvise as part of the ensemble.
