The CalWORKs program provides educational/training assistance to students who receive cash-aid through TANF, including self-initiated participants (SIPs) and GAIN referrals. The program assists students in entering the workforce at the highest level possible, and in developing a personal career ladder leading to increased self-sufficiency and individual growth. Support services include counseling, educational advising,progress monitoring, job development and placement, post employment, childcare, work-study, and case management.
To be eligible for CalWORKs services, a student must be receiving cash-aid under the Federal government’s Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF) Program. Students not receiving TANF benefits may qualify for other non-CalWORKs services.
To enroll or to obtain additional information on the CalWORKs program, please call (909) 274-4755 and make an appointment for an initial intake. You can also visit the CalWORKS office located in the Student Services Building (9B), next to EOPS.
