The University of West Georgia Student Employment Office acts only as a Referral Service for Off-campus Non-UWG positions and makes no particular recommendations regarding employers. Since off-campus non-work study employment opportunities are not under the jurisdiction of UWG, the University assumes no obligation for verification of job standards, continued employment or affirmative action procedures.
The Student Employment Office is not responsible for the safety, wages, working conditions or other aspects of off-campus employment. Due to the volume of jobs received by this office, we cannot research the integrity of each organization or person that posts a job with us. Therefore, it is your responsibility to do so. Beware of jobs that require you to pay money, buy supplies or wants you to cash checks and take out your percentage of pay and then send them the remainder of the money. No legitimate company will ask for money up front or pay you for work you have not yet done. If complaints are given to us about a particular employer, we will investigate, and have the right to discontinue our posting services for that employer.
Students must be currently registered and enrolled in at least one class to view all available Off-campus Positions through WolfWorks.
The America Reads Challenge is an initiative started in 1996 by the Clinton Administration. In August 1996, President Clinton proposed a national literacy campaign that would enlist “one million volunteer tutors ready and able to give children the personal attention they need to catch up and get ahead.”
Each tutor is expected to encourage students in the subject areas of Reading and Mathematics, and support children in their school development. Tutors work directly with elementary students to improve their reading and math proficiency skills. Tutors perform one-on-one work with individual students, group work, or class activities.
To be considered for an America Reads tutor you must be eligible for Federal Work Study, maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA, and have transportation to travel to schools in the Carrollton area.
