RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - The new Wind River Job Corps Center in Riverton is expected to receive its first cohort of 20 students in August, with additional groups arriving in the following months.

By mid-December, 300 students should be enrolled from Wyoming and surrounding states.

The seven-building campus includes dormitories, a wellness center, a recreation building, cafeteria and an academic building.

Officials tell The Ranger (https://bit.ly/1GudLc2 ) that students will be able to earn a stipend of $21 per week, with limited permission to leave the center.

Students will be able to stay at the center for up to two years, with an additional year possible for anyone who chooses to pursue advanced training in a trade.
