Center Life

A typical day at Delaware Valley 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.


At Delaware Valley Job Corps, we work hard and we play hard. 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.

Whatever you enjoy, Delaware Valley Job Corps has an activity for you. For those who enjoy indoor activities, we offer traditional sports and games such as basketball, handball, and softball. Our indoor activities include dances, open mike nights, poetry groups, and talent shows.

We also have academic contests in the areas of essay writing and mathematics. Our center's Academic Olympics team competes against teams from other Job Corps centers.

Off Center Trips

We sponsor off center trips to local houses of worship, plays, concerts, museums, bowling alleys, movie theaters, professional and minor league sporting events, skating rinks, and bowling alleys. We also schedule trips for canoeing, water tubing, camping, and fishing so that students can enjoy the natural resources around us.

Student Clubs

We have several student-led clubs at our center including a vocal choir and a DJ club with professional quality equipment. Students are always welcome to submit ideas for new clubs.

Community Involvement

Many of our students volunteer in the local community. Some use their career technical skills to assist with projects while others help with community breakfasts, local youth carnivals, or even the local Callicoon Tractor Parade.

Student Government Association

The Student Government Association (SGA) is the voice of our students and is very involved in the operation of the center. Through the SGA, students can learn about self-government and develop their leadership skills.


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

We expect our students be on their best behavior and treat others with respect at all times. Our Disciplinary Plan (59 kb PDF file) lists the possible consequences that students may face if they break our center rules.
