California Work Opportunity and Responsibility for Kids (CalWORKs) Program
The CalWORKs Program is funded through the Chancellor’s Office of the California Community Colleges. The program is designed to promote self-sufficiency through employment and education. This statewide employment initiative offers supportive services to students currently receiving cash assistance (TANF) through their county’s CalWORKs program. These supportive services are designed to assist students obtain the educational level they need to transition off of cash aid and ultimately achieve long term self-sufficiency.
