California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs)...    


Was established in 1997 by Assembly Bill (AB) 1542 as a cash aid program for low income families who require assistance meeting their basic needs. CalWORKs can assist single or two-parent families who are receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), and those in transition off welfare, achieve long-term self-sufficiency through education, employment, and training programs to help families get jobs. Child care, transportation, work expenses and counseling are also available for families in work activities. There is a four year time limit for adults but the children can remain on aid if otherwise eligible under the Safety Net program.

The El Camino College (ECC) CalWORKs Program provides support to eligible students to help them obtain their educational degrees and certificates while gaining valuable work experience. A wide array of services are offered to help students achieve their goals including counseling, case management, job placement, work study, tutoring, and reimbursements for books and supplies. The CalWORKs Program staff is dedicated to providing our students guidance, support and the best customer service on campus. Most important we want our students to know that we are here to serve them and they are always welcome in our office.
