What is CalWORKs?

The CalWORKs, or "California Work Opportunities & Responsibility to Kids", Program is a state-mandated program that provides educational and training assistance to student-parents who are receiving TANF Benefits. The Program aids students in achieving long-term success through the attainment of higher education, which, in turn, promotes self-sufficiency and personal growth. At Oxnard College, the objective of the CalWORKs Program is to equip the CalWORKs student with special supportive services including academic counseling, childcare, Work-Study, and insuring compliance with the Human Services Agency's Welfare-to-Work Program regulations. 


Oxnard College CalWORKs Mission Statement

The focus of the Oxnard College CalWORKs Program is to empower student-parents within a supportive community united in bridging the gap from adversity to self-sufficiency through higher education and personal success.
