California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids

CalWORKs Work Study


CalWORKs Work Study is a great way to earn extra income while still in school and gain valuable work experience. CalWORKs Work Study Students can work on- or off-campus. To get started meet with the CalWORKs Job Developer at Cabrillo who will walk you through the easy orientation process and explore your employment options with you.


Students must be enrolled in the Cabrillo CalWORKs program in order to qualify for CalWORKs Work Study which is one of two "work study" programs at Cabrillo College. Check with Financial Aid for information about Federal Work Study if you are not a CalWORKs student.

I work with CalWORKs students to help place them in both on and off campus Work Study positions in their preferred professional career area. I work with students on Soft Skills and more recently I am working with the Career Technical Education (CTE) programs on Soft Skills curriculum and Job Development activities. I have three kids and four 6 fur babies.
