Community Work-Study

earn financial aid!

Get experience working at a nonprofit community partner


Through your classes at SLCC, you are gaining knowledge and skills that are preparing you for a career. You can get experience applying this knowledge and skills through the myriad work-study opportunities offered through the Thayne Center office and benefit community partners in the process. From tutoring through America Reads or being directly placed at a nonprofit, we hope to make a mutually beneficial connection for you and our community partner.

You will learn to be a good tutor through the America Reads orientation, training from your America Reads partner sites, and ongoing trainings through the Thayne Center for Student Life, Leadership and Community Engagement. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to reflect on your impact at your site through prompts and workshops.


After filing your FAFSA, you can find out from SLCC Financial Aid about your work-study eligibility. The maximum work study award is $3,000 per semester. You can earn your federal work-study award at $16.25 to $18.00 an hour through our programs.
The first step is to review the list of opportunities above and apply through SLCC Jobs. If you have questions about the positions or want to brainstorm what might be a good fit for you, please reach out to our coordinator for a meeting first to discuss the opportunities. After you have applied, there will be an interview and/or orientation process.
