The Center partners with local nonprofit organizations and places students in those offices to perform their work study hours gaining real-world work experience. Community Work Study offers an opportunity other work-study programs cannot. This federally funded program allows students to receive financial assistance through three unique options: work directly with a community-based organization, lead a campus based service program, or work with faculty in a (classroom) service-learning environment.
Job opportunities for CWS students include work as tutors, community design assistants, curriculum developers, tax preparers, and after-school program coordinators. Students gain a variety of new job skills, while also experiencing the culture of the Mission Hill community first-hand.
If you are a community organization that is interested in hosting a Wentworth Community Work-Study student, please fill out the following forms and return them to Courtney Wright.
