CalWORKs (California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids) is a state funded Welfare-to-Work program designed to help individuals become self-sufficient.
What is FLC CalWORKs?
Folsom Lake College's CalWORKs program provides support and services to assist students who are currently state CalWORKs recipients, or who are in transition off of CalWORKs to achieve long-term self-sufficiency. Specifically, our department provides coordinated college student services to eligible participants to ensure that they are completing adequate progress towards their county-approved education goal while also assuming a point of contact, coordination and advocacy between the student and their county case worker to ensure compliance and success. Services include advising and referral services, counseling in order to obtain a CalWORKs approved Student Educational Plan, job development and job placement, educational supply vouchers, work-study opportunities, assistance with textbook cost verifications, assistance with enrollment verification documents, transportation resources, child care referrals and advocacy.
FLC CalWORKs is here to assist you on your pathway to academic success, lifelong self-sufficiency and empowerment. Please contact us with any questions that you may have about our services.
