Center Life

A typical day at Albuquerque 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.

Our center offers extended training day activities. Welders in training may elect to work from 8 AM to 8 PM. Our School for Integrated Academics and Technologies (SIATech) Charter School offers tutoring four evenings per week for all subjects as well as college preparation.

At the end of the day, most students are in bed by 10 PM in order to rest for the next day's tasks.


Albuquerque 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. We offer traditional sports and games such as soccer and softball.

We conduct regular surveys with our students to get their feedback about our recreational programs. Of course, students are always welcome to make their suggestions for new or existing activities to any member of our recreation staff.


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.
