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.”

Job Corps Fraud for Taxpayers

Hopefully, this blog will be a “one stop” place for researchers, reporters, parents, students and staff to find information about their particular Job Corps Center.  Come to this site if you want to find out if there are ongoing problems with the Job Corps Centers in your state.

Please be patient, there is a massive amount of information that will be included on this site which will need to be updated at least daily. Use the pages at the top to find your particular Job Corps Center or check the “Job Corps Centers” pages to see if your center is mentioned on this site.  Again, this blog was begun on February 27, 2010 and it will take a long time to post all the information in a easy, readable format.  There will be a page for you to describe your experiences at your Job Corps Center.  Thank you for using appropriate language.

My first few links will be about 2009 Kittrell Job Corps, NC and Shriver Job Corps, Devens, MA, where I was employed.
