CalWORKs Employment Services
Published on: 3/13/2012 12:00 AM
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.
Basic Eligibility Requirements
In order to be eligible for employment services, you must be a CalWORKs recipient or be employed and have received CalWORKs cash aid in the last 12 months. Refer to the California Work Opportunities and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) for eligibility requirements for cash aid.
Applying for CalWORKs
CalWORKs Clients are referred to the CalWORKs Employment Services program by their Eligibility Worker.  A CalWORKs cash aid recipient who is exempt from participation in CalWORKs Employment Services can volunteer to participate in the program.   For more information, contact your local CalWORKs office or e-mail us.
