Community Work-Study

The Bonner Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) offers students with Federal Work-Study (FWS) a variety of opportunities to earn their award serving in the Richmond community.

Through the Community Work-Study (CWS) Program, students may work directly with contracted nonprofit or governmental organizations in a variety of issue areas. This is a full semester (preferably a full year) commitment, and a regular work schedule of at least four hours per week is required for participation in the program.

The following organizations are current CWS sites, and new sites continue to be added, so be sure to check back.
