Calworks Employment Services Program
CalWORKs stands for California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids which provides temporary cash aid to eligible families with minor children. CalWORKs also provides assistance in finding and keeping a job. All parents and caretaker relatives who receive CalWORKs cash assistance must participate with CalWORKs Employment Services unless they are exempt.
Employment services include job-related education or training and/or job-search preparation such as attending a job-preparation workshop, participating in practice job interviews, and going to actual job interviews. The goal of the program is to help clients prepare for work and find a job so that they can become self-sufficient.
