CalWORKs

MISSION STATEMENT

The Cerritos College CalWORKs (California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids) Program assists students receiving cash aid from the Department of Social Services (DPSS) to achieve educational goals and long term economic self-sufficiency. This is done through a focused case management-counseling model that includes intensive academic, career, and personal counseling services. Special program aspects include an "Early Alert Program" (EAP) designed to prepare students for program expectations and success retention and a "Work-Study" Program allowing students to acquire professional competencies that will promote a successful transition into the labor market.
