The Student Government Association (SGA) is the voice of our students and is very involved in the operation of the center. The SGA meets weekly to discuss various projects and to address new items of business.
The SGA is responsible for operating the Student Store. Several nights during the week, the SGA distributes free snacks, such as hot dogs, hot pockets, pretzels, chips, or cookies, through the Student Store.
The SGA also participates in various community service activities by working with local civic organizations and businesses. These activities allow our students to give back to the local community.
The SGA offers several leadership opportunities for our students. These are two Leadership Conferences at Harrisonburg, Virginia and the Annual ResCare United Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C. At these conferences, our center's SGA members can meet with other SGA members from Job Corps centers from all across the nation.
The Executive Board of the SGA consists of students elected to the offices of the President, Vice President, Chief Justice, Secretary, Treasurer, Sergeant of Arms, Reporter, and various Representative positions. Elections are held every six months giving all eligible students the opportunity to participate in the SGA.
