Nationwide mismanagement of Job Corps calls for action!

Ocanaluftee Job Corps Center Shows Pattern of Abusive Practices (OIG)

“National Park Service Oconaluftee Job Corps Center Shows Pattern of Abusive Practices”


Read the OIG report here:


“The National Park Service (NPS), a Federal entity within the Department of Interior, operated the Oconaluftee Job Corps Center located in North Carolina. We conducted an audit of the Oconaluftee Center to determine if the Center properly reported student accomplishments and attendance and complied with financial reporting requirements.



Our audit identified concerns related to students’ health and safety that were reported to Job Corps through an Alert Report, “National Park Service Has Not Assured the Safety and Health of Students at the Oconaluftee Job Corps Center,” dated July 7, 2006.


Read the Alert here:

This audit also disclosed problems by NPS management and Center-level staff that resulted in Job Corps not having accurate assessment information. In addition, students were not given the level of services expected by Job Corps. We also found that, contrary to requirements, Center personnel were not separating students who exceeded Absence Without Leave limitations. This inflated the Center’s on-board strength.”
