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.
An Anime Club meets regularly to discuss, show, and promote anime as well as broaden Japanese cultural understanding. Any Anime fan is welcome to join. Our activities range from viewing and discussing Anime, playing games, or doing Anime-related crafts. From classics of the medium to the latest titles from Japan, whatever interests you about Anime and Manga is welcome here.
The Debate Club’s mission is to provide members instruction and practice in the art of public speaking, with an emphasis on debate. Students train in the Lincoln-Douglas debate style, public forum debates, extemporaneous speaking, and other forms of public rhetoric. Most meetings focus on debating current political and ethical issues in a respectful and edifying way. Members practice case-writing, rebuttals, cross-examination skills, analytical thinking, and political and moral philosophy.
It’s a fun way to make new friends and develop critical-thinking and communication skills.
The goal of the Fitness Club is to spread education and awareness about the importance and joy of exercise and an active lifestyle. Through fun, games, and exercise routines the club seeks to enhance the strength, flexibility, of its members, and foster a lifelong commitment to health and activity.
The Games Club provides a venue for students to connect and compete in a variety of interactive board game, RPGs, and other social games, particularly those that develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills. In addition to being a fun way to blow off some steam between studying and classes, it’s a great way to meet people who share your interest in gaming.
Poets are artists who paint and sculpt with their words. They can use their language to convey ideas, emotions, and concepts in a way that reach a listener’s heart as well as their head.
At Poetry Club, we think everyone has a poet inside them with something to say, and we bring students together to discover their own unique voice. Along the way, members will pick up some important public speaking and literacy skills. Most importantly, the club is about having fun with other students and learning new ways to express and inspire with words.
Fostering positive relationships with the communities our centers are in is a key part of what Job Corps does. This can mean performing work in the neighborhood that aligns with a student's career pathway, such as building new playgrounds, patching up sidewalks, or cleaning up parks. At the Cincinnati Job Corps Center, it also means assisting the following organizations and events with their important work:
- Annual blood drive
- Earth Day
- Health Expo
- Make A Difference Day
