CalWORKs (California Work Opportunity and Responsibility for Kids) is the state’s Welfare-to-Work program for families with children. The College of the Canyons CalWORKs Program works in partnership with the
Department of Public Social Services to assist students with education, training and job skills.
We in the CalWORKs department strive to assist our students in obtaining educational degrees and certificates while gaining experience that leads to the successful transition to employment. CalWORKs students are eligible to get assistance with school related expenses such as books, supplies, transportation, and child care through their designated Welfare-to-Work agency. If you are receiving Temporary Aid for Needy Families (TANF), the College of the Canyons CalWORKs Program can help you navigate county requirements and set you on a path to become self-sufficient.
