CalWorksCalifornia Work Opportunity & Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) is a state-funded Welfare-to-Work program designed to help individuals on public assistance become self-sufficient.

Contra Costa College’s CalWORKs program works together with other campus partners and community agencies to provide comprehensive services that promote self-sufficiency through education, vocational training, and employment.

We strive to help our CalWORKs students obtain lifelong learning through education, and gain access to the work force and a new career, while providing support services that help ensure a successful transition by providing educational and career opportunities combined with an array of high-quality support services that enable students to complete their educational goals, find meaningful employment, and successfully transition into the workforce.
