    sorry for your friend, but rape happns every day in all different places. Just because it happened at Job Corp doesn't mean that all Job Corp are high risk for rape to happen.

  • My sister wanted to send her son to jobcorp. Despite her being a single parent with a deadbeat exhusband who never paid child support she made 'too much money' to allow them to take her son.
    It's a great program if you can get in...but the kids there are a rough bunch. It is pretty much their last hope, end og the line shot..
    Theses are MY opinions based on what I know from experience.

  • Is it not! I was warning her that it's not all wonderful and to do her research before sending her child off. You expected me to say nothing?
