Pay and Allowances
While in the program, Job Corps pays each student a living allowance twice a month. Like a real job, taxes are deducted from this allowance.
Housing and Transportation
Since Philadelphia Job Corps is a non-residential center, we do not offer on-campus housing. However, we do offer transportation assistance to those who qualify.
Our students are provided two nutritious meals each day in one of the best cafeteria facilities in Job Corps.
The wellness center is open daily for basic medical, dental, and optometric services which are free to our students. The center also provides weight management, smoking cessation, pregnancy prevention, and other health-related programs.
As a Job Corps graduate, you will be qualified and prepared for today's professional workplace. Additional graduate benefits include:
- A transition allowance of up to $1000 to assist you with transportation and housing
- Job placement assistance for up to nine months
- Career counseling
- Transitional counseling services
