Center Life

A typical day at Quentin N. Burdick Job Corps is full of activities to help our students prepare for the real world. Students get up early and spend the majority of their day receiving academic and hands-on career technical training.

After class, students study or hang out with friends before dinner in the cafeteria. After dinner, students may do chores in their dorms or spend their downtime studying. Most students are in bed by 10 PM in order to rest for the next day's tasks.


Quentin N. Burdick Job Corps boasts one of the best recreation programs in the nation. Students find our recreational activities to be a fun and exciting way to meet new friends, socialize, and just relax and unwind at the end of the day. These activities include kickboxing classes, arts and crafts, bowling, pool tournaments, and many others.

We also have an Arts and Crafts Center that provides a wide variety of creative opportunities. Painting, drawing, ceramics, and leatherworking are just a few of the activities available.

Our students can participate in city league sports as well as intramural sports programs in basketball, volleyball, flag football and softball.

Recreation trips off center are scheduled regularly allowing our students to visit local events and attractions such as Minot SkyRockets basketball games and area shopping malls.


Job Corps is committed to offering all students a safe and secure environment. That's why we have a Zero Tolerance Policy. Any student who breaks this policy will be dismissed immediately from Job Corps.
