I am currently attending Whitney M Young and I believe this place has set me on a path to greatness. Im going to advance training in october for LPN. Before coming here I was up to no good, didnt care about life, and just a disappointment to myself. Once I was enrolled in here my attitude has changed, my walk and talk has changed. Im starting to care more about my life and the lifes of others. Even though I dont get along wilth all the staff I have to thank Mr. Houston the old CD. Mrs. Barber, Ms. Marshall the counselor, Ms. Givens Grad 90, Mrs. Masden my trade instructor, Ms. B. the RA, and last but not least Ms. Cottrell. Without these people in my life I would still be doing nothing. Everyone should go to a job corps center if not this one if you dont know where you stand in life. Trust me they will help you, so THANK YOU WHITNEY M. YOUNG you made me a better human.

A place for education and training – The person not having a good experience is a shame. Like the other positive people, if you set your mind to accomplish, you will. If you decide to hate, to argue, to complain about everyday life issues and not learn how to deal with them, then you're going to go online and whine like a little baby girl. Wah.

This job corps, like I'm sure all other job corps, is a great place for young people to complete an education and get serious technical training. I did. I'm doing fine and without Whitney Young I would be sticking up people, in jail, doing drugs or dead.

Thanks for helping me turn my life around and making me a productive member of society, with a nice home, family and I pay my taxes so this program can continue!

graduated in 1989 – Whitney Young was a different place when i attended, i was an 18 year old know it all. I went to get a trade, i had my HSD, I enjoy my stay at Whitney Young met alot of people made some good friends.

When i attended Whitney we had a basketball team, softball teams and we went to a lot of other Job

Corps, is that still the same? I would like to say that it was a life changingg experience and i am glad that i went there. I am 41 years old and I am making 80,000.00 a year from a trade that I received from Whitney.

Whitney M Young – I just recently left Whitney M young job corps center this past november.....and it's sad to say it was horrible i never experienced bed bugs lack of professionalism and organization my entire life. The center director is horrible the wellness nurses have no idea what they are doing and some of the staff are rude as hell. It's like they try and belittle you as a person failing to realize that everyone that comes to job corps is not a delinquent or a pot head or came there because they didn't have anywhere else to go. Before i left the center was in debt and a new management company was coming in called Odele management (OMG for short) hopefully the center will do better. It was times the dorms ran out of toilet paper for weeks at a time.. lack of trips to walmart for personal items. the bed bugs there were horrible one of my roommates had got bitten on several different occasions it got so bad to the point they had to send all the girls home in Robinson dormitory home for 2 weeks to fix it...but when we returned the bed bugs were still there....the ac never worked the heater never work. then to put the icing on the cake a student there got raped by another student on campus. there was a steady flow of narcotics on campus and liquor. overall i wouldn't recommend whitney m young to anyone

Whiney M Young Great Opportunity – i went to whitney m young in 2001 and part of 2002. of course, the center had its problems but i went to get my ged and a trade. as long has i stayed focused on my goals, the trip away from home was well wearth it. i got my ged and a cna tade in about six months. i went home and have been slowly working on a nursing degree. without whitney m young i belive it would have been much harder to achieve my goals. stay focused and the expreince will all pay off.

Whitney Young was a great learning experience – I went to Whitney Young in 1997, I had just turned 17. I didnt go for the right reason so i got kicked out. I did recieve my Ged, I am currently enrolled in college in M.S. without my ged that would of never happened. I am 29 and on the roed to success. If i would of applied myself twelve years ago, I would of had my degree a long time ago. So young adults, if you decide to go to Whitney Young, go for a skill and your Ged, not to join a click or party. I don't know if any of these people are still there but i'd like to say hello, to Mrs. Patterson, Mr. Robarts. Mr. Sievert my painting instructor Mrs. Davis and countless others.

I Loved It Here – The Ra's Were Great... I Just Graduated From Whitney M Young In December Of 2008.

And Now Am Going Into The Marines... But I Loved The Center

For If I Were To Find A Job Now, I Know What To Do

Mind You I Joined When i Was 16, So I Was Pretty Clueless... But Now I Have A LiL Experience And The Couselors Are Still Calling Me Up And Checking On Me.

It is what you make of it. – Hello all. I went to Whitney M Young Job Corps Center a number of years ago. I saw some arial snap shots of the campus and it looks great. I got my GED in 1989 from there and I then went into the Air Force- Where I have been for the past 17 years. I thank this place because I had to learn to know the basic rights and wrongs in life. To the person that said that they don't give enough chances- I say are you crazy??!! That is the one main problem that I remember. They were always giving second, third, forth, fifth and on and on and on chances. If they would just kick them out if they break the rules it would be even better for the others there that want to actually do something with their life. I have two daughters and I would not hesitate to send them there. I have been stationed all over the world and the students at this job corps just don't know how good they got it. Nowhere else in the world do they have a setup like this. If they would just start showing tough love and publicize it, the others would learn that what not to do.
