California Work Opportunity & Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs)

California Work Opportunity & Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) at Sacramento City College is  designed to help recipients who receive county cash assistance learn vocational skills through a college education to help students become gainfully employed and financially self-sufficient.

What can CalWORKs do for you?

At Sacramento City College, we strive to help our CalWORKs students obtain lifelong learning through education and help them gain access to the workforce by providing the array of high-quality support services listed below:

  • Academic, Career & Personal Counseling
  • Assistance with textbooks and college supplies
  • Priority enrollment in classes
  • Job Placement on-campus and off-campus (subsidized wages don’t count against county cash aid or food stamps)
  • Coordination with county caseworker (advocacy for the student)
  • Referrals to on and off campus support services
  • and much more
