CalWORKS

 

WHAT IS CALWORKS?

The California Work Opportunities and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) Program at Reedley College is designed to help recipients who receive cash aid from the Counties of Fresno, Madera, and Tulare earn vocational skills and reach your education goals to help you become gainfully employed and financially self-sufficient.
If you receive cash aid from a county welfare department, have children, and are enrolled in college or want to sign up for college, you can participate in the CalWORKs Program at Reedley College or at Clovis, Madera, or Oakhurst Centers. 

If you attend Reedley College while receiving aid, you may be eligible for:

  • Academic, Career, & Personal Counseling
  • Assistance with purchasing Textbooks & Supplies
  • Assistance Child Care & Transportation: - there are also options for public transportation to the RC campus from Kingsburg, Selma, Fowler, Parlier, Sanger, and Dinuba.
  • Financial Aid
  • Job Placement
  • Job Training Programs
  • LifeSkills Courses in Life Strategies for Success,  Financial Literacy (Practical Money Skills for Life), & Healthy Parenting/Family Relationships
  • Priority Registration  
  • Referrals to on/off campus Support Services
  • Work Study (earn while you learn through paid on-campus jobs!)

We can help you with child care

Finally, you can go to school and not worry about child care.  While you attend classes and educational activities, you may be able to leave your infant or toddler on campus with the Reedley College Child Development Center.  You'll get priority acceptance for enrollment. 

We can help you put extra money in your pocket

Our Work Study program will help you find a job on campus.  You'll gain valuable job skills, earn references, and get a paycheck in addition to your regular cash aid grant.  This is a great way to make extra money while you're on aid.  You may also be eligible for additional cash grants through financial aid.
