Federal Community Work Study Employment

The Federal Community Work Program was established in 1995 as a part of the Federal Work-Study Program. The Federal Community Work Program was designed to help improve the quality of life in the greater Wooster Community and Wayne County. Students that participate in this program work with local non-profit organizations in fields such as health, child and adult care, welfare, education, tutoring, and community improvement.

Continuation in the Community Work Program is contingent upon the student participant’s performance. The student can be removed from a particular assignment or from the Organization by The College of Wooster, either on its own initiative or at the request of the Organization at any time during the academic year.

If a student participant fails to meet the guidelines of the program they can be removed from the program.

Community Work Program Guidelines:

  • Must be a current student at The College of Wooster
  • The student participant cannot exceed 20 hours per week
  • The student cannot work when they are scheduled to be in class, including online classes.
  • To participate in the Community Work Program a student must have a Federal Work-Study allocation.
  • The student participant will be considered an employee of The College of Wooster.
  • The work assignment is for the current academic year.
  • The student participant cannot exceed the amount of their Federal Work-Study allocation.
  • The student participant cannot have an on-campus job while participating in the Community Work Program.
  • The student participant must comply with the deadlines set for the submission of all paperwork and time cards.
  • Because student employment provides students with an opportunity to build professional and technical skills, your student workers should not work unsupervised. Supervisor’s should regularly monitor the student’s job duties and performance.
