Center Life

A typical day at Los Angeles 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 dining facility. After dinner, students may do chores in their dorms or spend their downtime studying. Most students are in bed by 11 PM in order to rest for the next day's tasks.


Los Angeles Job Corps operates a recreation and leisure time program designed to provide students with an array of recreational activities related to performing arts, painting and art and crafts, yoga, fitness, music, basketball, flag football, soccer, softball, tennis, and swimming. In addition, the recreation department aims to provide students with opportunities for community involvement through various community service as well as weekend activities related to trade interest.


Job Corps is committed to offering all students a safe and secure environment. We enforce the  Zero Tolerance Policy for violence and drugs. Any student who breaks this policy will be separated immediately from Job Corps.
