  1. I attended Job Corps in Maine. I would never send my 16 year old daughter or son to live on a Job Corps campus. Here you have 16 and 17 year old teenagers living with 18 to 23 ADULTS. At the Job Corps that I attended students came from different states and honestly some were not nice people and shouldn’t have been there. I have seen young girls develop relationships with older guys and become pregnant and have to leave. I’ve seen drug and alcohol use, fights, and cliques. I’ve also seen psychiatric issues, personality and behavioral changes. I’m not against education and learning job skills, but I don’t feel it’s appropriate to have vulnerable, impressionable teenagers housed with adults. There are other issue with campus living at Job Corps.
