The CalWORKs Program provides educational support and resources to help students obtain the skills needed to be placed in and retain family supporting employment. Students currently served are: CalWORKs participants and students receiving Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF) cash aid.
Supportive services include:
- Academic and career counseling
- Priority registration
- Book vouchers
- Child care support
- Job readiness skills
Counseling services include assistance with welfare-to-work plans, education plans and 20, 30 or 35 hour weekly schedules. We provide coordinated referrals to both on-campus and community resources such as: Catholic Charities, VTA Outreach and the Santa Clara County Family Stabilization Program. In addition, CalWORKs offers on-campus work study positions in collaboration with other departments.
By using CalWORKs services I will:
- Determine an educational goal and outline an educational plan
- Demonstrate job readiness skills through on-campus or off-campus employment (for county referred non-SIP students)
- Successfully complete the program as defined by the Santa Clara County Department of Social Services
Thank you for visiting CalWORKs!
