Get Great Employees Through Federal Work Study
Help OCC Students Gain Work Experience
If you run a nonprofit organization, public agency, or business, you can provide valuable work experience to OCC students by participating in the Federal Work-Study program.
The FWS program helps low-income students acquire job skills while earning money for college. Students typically work 10 to 30 hours per week during the school year.
You gain three major benefits by participating in the FWS program:
- Access to young, enthusiastic employees that you choose through interviews.
- Reimbursement for 50 percent to 100 percent of the students’ wages.
- The satisfaction that comes from helping prepare young people for today’s workforce.
