  • If you want to go then you should.. it sounds like a great place but you realize if you do that then you will loose the support of your family unless someone will relocate with you... what is more worth it having free babysitters (family) and everything or trying to go at it all by yourself... personally I would stick with my family but its not me its you so you need to think about it and make a decision.. what does your family think

  • It sounds like a really awesome opportunity. Are they gong to train you in a field that you really want to be in though? (I'm not that clear on how Job Corps works, sorry) The crappy thing about the real world is that you're not always going to have the support network tha family provides and it sounds like this place will help you adapt to that along with learning a marketable job skill. I'd say go for it. You're not really on your own, you have all the other students and instructors and employees there to help guide you and support you
