CalWORKs participants may be eligible for on- or off-campus paid work study positions through the CalWORKs Work Study Program. This is an excellent opportunity for students to gain valuable, hands-on experience often related to their field of study while also participating in an education training program.
Students who are interested in participating in the CalWORKs Work Study Program are encouraged to complete a Student Interest Form.
Applicants must meet the following criteria:
The Verification of Benefits form is required prior to placement and the beginning of each school semester to be signed by GAIN or eligibility services worker.
All students are required to attend a CalWORKs Work Study Orientation. The orientation gives an overview of the program, purpose, goals, student requirements, student rights, responsibilities, work ethics, campus resources and the hiring process. Enhancement skills workshops are presented to increase student employability and as a guide for success in the workplace.
