Federal Work-Study - Community Service

Clarion University's Federal Work Study - Community Service Program (FWS-CS) is administered by the Career Development Center. Most student positions are with community organizations that are designed to improve the quality of life for community residents or to solve problems related to their needs. Community positions are off-campus and at sites that focus on health care, child care, literacy training, education and tutorial services, welfare, social services, public safety, recreation, rural development or community improvement. On campus positions mentor or tutor peers and provide career experience for the student in the position. 

The FWS-CS program is not the same as on-campus student employment in auxiliary services (dining hall, residence halls, recreation center) or university offices.

These positions are designed to provide students with work-learning experience related to their  career goals. Students who meet FWS-CS eligibility criteria are provided with applications. Vacancies are announced on Career Connections by the third week of the each academic semester or as vacancies occur.
