Did you know that ARC CalWORKs has a work-study program?! It's true! There are tons of benefits to work-study, especially as a CalWORKs student!
You can hone a bunch of important skills like:
- Language skills
- Standard office procedures
- Customer services
The income you receive from work-study doesn't impact your county cash aid, but it DOES count towards your required hours! It's a win-win!
That doesn't even include all of the job-specific skills you will learn! We try to connect you with a position that complements your educational and career goals!
We (currently) subsidize (up to) 75% of your wage! That's a big incentive for some employers - especially when budgets are limited. So, if you're already exploring the job market, then work-study could be a real benefit. Yes, we support work-study positions at businesses off campus!
If you're interested in learning more about CalWORKs work-study, then let us know and someone from our office will contact you with more information and options!
Expressing an interest in work-study is not an obligation to participate.
You can learn about the program without any further commitment.
It's also not a guarantee of employment, but it's good first step on your road to employment!
We hope to hear from you!
